Back in March I had purchased several bags of Caladium bulbs, also called corms. If you want to see what the Caladium bulbs looks like before being planted click this link, Caladium Bulbs. Within the last two weeks they have started to leaf out.

I planted them in my garden bed with the ferns and Snow of the Mountain.
