What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Woodland HighlightsWoodland paths naturally suggest a slower pace, yet they can be uneventful without a few highlights. Here groups of shade-loving caladiums have been repeated along the pathway, sweeping the eye easily from one side to the other and inviting us to see where the disappearing path leads. This contrast in foliage color and texture makes the journey more interesting, while the repetition of these groups makes the stroll memorable.Do you find yourself rushing along your garden path, or do you enjoy those few moments? By simply rearranging and repeating a few plants, you can transform the experience from predictable to exceptional.Browse thousands of beautiful path design photos | Houzz guides to flowers and plants
Designing with tropical bulbs. When placing tropical bulbs in your landscape, don't hesitate to pick up a few extra plants. After all, these plants don't skimp on the impact, so why would you want them to look like an afterthought? It's true that a single caladium poking out of a shade planting might evoke a feeling of whimsy, but three planted together for a mound of heart-stopping foliage becomes a focal point. Since tropical bulbs do tend to multiply, a single plant just looks unnatural anyway. The sizes of tropical bulbs vary considerably, but generally speaking they look best when surrounded by a mass of finely textured plants.

Another example of tropical low bed massing - even at the foremost part a dwarf philodendron variety that is a great option to consider at your entrance. Caladiums offer seasonal color.
