I love them all but I would have to say FL Beauty is one of my favorites and FL Elise one that's not at the top of my list.
Who am I kidding, I love them all.....lol... I have the greatest job in the world!!!

I was really surprised when I first started growing caladiums. I generally go for the pink,peach, coral colors and not the reds. So when I ordered my first caladiums I ordered Fl Sweethearts for myself. My Mom loves red so I ordered Red Flash for her. Boy did I fall in love with them. Next year I ordered some for myself and a lot more red colors. Not sure that I could name a favorite.

Thanks to Grandma and the joy flowers brought to her and in turn to me.

Hi Polly,

I have several new varieties I'm releasing in 2011. You can find them on the website under Exclusive Varieties.
I only have 3 of them listed right this second but I'll be adding about 5 more in the next couple of days.
I am the only grower in the world that I know of growing these new and exciting new varieties.

Bill, I've never grown Caladiums before..but would love to try them as i think they are beautiful. Is there a print catalog to show the different varieties? Do they require shade or sun?

Hi Bill. Thanks so much for the link and the wonderful sale. I will be getting with you a little closer to the 23rd. I kinda gave up after Kustav ate my garden in late 2008. Then last year I decided to just buy a few caladiums from the big box store. YUK. Once you've grown Caladium4less bulbs , the others are just pitiful. Thanks again Bill!

Debbie

Edited to add my favorites: Florida Sweetheart and White Queen (these where from you in 2008)
