The caladium is a genus of plants that grow from a tuber during spring until fall. The foliage then dies off until the next growing season. This plant displays the most attractive leaves from this collection of bulb house plants and many other indoor plants. Many varieties display pink, white or red leaves with green outer edges and veins.
The false shamrock is also known as the purple shamrock, which displays triangular clover type leaves. This bulbous species produces plenty of small trumpet like flowers between spring and summer.
