Fancy Leafed Tropical Tubers

Wikipedia says there are over 1000 named cultivars of Caladium bicolor from the original South American plant. Wow! I guess one could become an expert (and that it would take some time too) on just Caladiums.

Well I am unlikely to become an expert, but I just learned a little about the history of this plant, some early and famous breeders and about an annual festival celebrating them in Lake Placid, Fla, which apparently is the caladium capital of the world.
