Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never came up. Very unhappy I planted these when I was supposed to and they never came up. I didn't plant a couple of them so I just threw them away. No sense in it if they were going to ROT underground too! Will not be buying from y'all again. Unsure of the zone. (Question below)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for Oklaohma I planted my tropical mix of Caladiums bulbs on Mother's Day 2015, the same day that I planted the elephant ear bulb I purchased at the same time. While my elephant ears are looking amazing, the caladiums have not done anything. They have not even peeked from the ground.
