Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Midway in size between a caladium and an elephant ear, Madeira grows only 2 to 3 feet tall, adding depth and drama to ga rden compositions. It is an ideal selection for the mid border or as a foliar element in large containers, where it contrasts and complements brightly colored foliage and flowers. Another great character trait of this new selection is that unlike other black-leaved forms, Madeira will not spread and take over your garden
