Angel Wings 'Miss Muffet', Miss Muffet Caladium, Fancy-Leafed Caladium


Sun tolerant, Caladium 'Miss Muffet' (Angel Wings) is a tuberous perennial with lush, heart-shaped, chartreuse leaves adorned with dark pink freckles.

This eye-catching swarf Caladium is terrific to add color and drama to shady borders, containers or hanging baskets. It also makes an excellent houseplant.

  • Performs best in sun or part shade, in humusy, moist, well-drained soils. Provide regular moisture and do not allow soils to dry out.
