Lake Placid, Florida

The city of Lake Placid is located in west central Florida and is know as “The Caladium Capital of the World”. Ninety –eight percent of the world’s caladium bulbs are grown in the fertile farm ground surrounding this town on barely over a thousand acres. Caladiums are ornamental plants that originated in South America and were first imported into the U.S. in the late 1800’s.
