Caladiums are truly wonderful, especially during the Texas summer. I put this plant in the ground around May and it is now thriving in this heat. It needs no attention from me. I don't know if there are varieties for sun, but most of them are for shady areas. I have a couple, this one and another that is just white with green veins. I think I need to plant many more of them next year. I'm not a hot weather gardener, so caladiums and I do well together.
