Red Flash is a red Fancy Leaf caladium variety. These shade to full sun loving caladium bulbs or tubers are great for adding easy color to your late spring and summer plantings. Red Flash is an old, very hearty caladium variety that is considered tall in height (2 -2.5 ft). Red Flash caladium bulbs are tropical foliage plants that are easy to grow in landscaping, pots and planters. Red Flash caladiums have very large leaves that have a waxy sheen with dark red central veins and dark green margins that are dotted with light pink spots. Red Flash is dramatic and showy and is a customer favorite because of its extreme size and hardiness. Caladium bulbs originated in the Amazon Basin, which is why they require and thrive in the warm summer day and night temperatures. Caladiums are from the Araceae family and mix well with other annuals, Hosta’s, ferns, and foliage.
