Caladium – Nehrling Gardens – May 2017

“Nehrling had several favorite species, which he grew and bred far more than others. Caladiums, Amaryllis, Palms, Cycads, and Bamboo were among those most grown at Palm Cottage. Nehrling describes in his writing as having planted 25000 individual Caladiums each year in his Lath Houses, as well as thousands of other species that required protection from the strong Florida sun.” –  Nehrling Gardens web site

Palm Gardens is located just west of Orlando in the town of Gotha.
