I’ve often confessed my love of caladiums. In fact, I recently taught a 90 minute class on only caladiums. Yes, that’s right, an hour and a half. It was awesome!

I feel very fortunate to get to see some of the newest varieties of caladiums before they hit the market and I wanted to share a few of those here. A few of these are now available in limited quantities, mostly from my friends at Classic Caladiums or Bates Sons & Daughters Caladiums. Both are great!

Do you have a favorite among these?  I am completely torn!  I should mention that I am a big fan of chartreuse and pink combinations, so the ‘Lemon Blush’ and ‘Autumn Beauty’ are both really attractive to me. And ‘Desert Sunset’ is such a unique color!  An almost rusty pink, it has dark veins and looks very refined to me.

I included ‘Miss Muffett’ in here just because she is one of my favorites, again, the chartreuse and pink colors. ‘Wildfire’ is certainly a new color palette too. The spots in here are a burnt orange color that I haven’t see in these new caladium varieties before. This is probably the opposite of the bubblegum pink ‘Spring Fling’ that has huge, almost transparent leaves. I am sure it would burn up in a sunny location, but in the shade it is a rock star.

I would love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment below on your favorites among these new caladium varieties!
