Patterns and Shapes in Nature- 4

Painted leaves

Caladiums are known for their big, heart-shaped leaves. They display beautiful colour combinations of white, pink, red and green. These are plants that thrive in hot and humid weather of the tropics.
Caladiums usually grow best in partial shade. Their beautiful foliage compensates for the lack of any colourful flowers.
The species belongs to Taro (Colocasia) family and has a large variety of cultivated plants. The pictures show a tender leaf, older leaf and a leaf about to wilt in that sequence.
