Landscape Attributes

Heart to Heart™ Hot 2 Trot Caladium is a dense herbaceous annual with a mounded form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other garden plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Heart to Heart™ Hot 2 Trot Caladium is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Accent;Mass Planting;General Garden Use;Container Planting;Hanging Baskets

Planting & Growing

Heart to Heart™ Hot 2 Trot Caladium will grow to be about 18 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 14 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 10 inches apart. Although it's not a true annual, this plant can be expected to behave as an annual in our climate if left outdoors over the winter, usually needing replacement the following year. As such, gardeners should take into consideration that it will perform differently than it would in its native habitat.
