Caladiums: Are They Toxic?

Why do the most attractive plants always seem to be the ones you can’t keep in your own garden? Caladiums, sometimes known as elephant’s ears or angel’s wings, are a common sight in residential gardens. Most horticulturists will recommend this plant if you’re looking for a splash of color because of the range of colors it comes in, which include red, pink, and white.

To make matters worse, it has been determined that every portion of this plant is poisonous to both people and animals. The mouth, lips, tongue, and throat can burn and swell if you swallow it. It can cause death by blocking the airways, which can make breathing difficult.
