A survey of caladium growers in Highlands County, Florida, was made in 1979 to determine the number of caladium cultivars grown and to ascertain the most pre dominant cultivars available. The most widely grown of 110

‘UF 85-5’: A Spotted Caladium Cultivar for Use in Containers and Sunny Landscapes
Caladiums (Caladium ·hortulanum Birdsey, Araceae Juss.) are tropical ornamental aroids. They are often forced as potted plants and grown in the landscape to provide color (Evans et al., 1992). A
Assessment of Genetic Diversity and Relationships Among Caladium Cultivars and Species Using Molecular Markers
TLDR
There is a limited amount of molecular diversity in caladium cultivars, but the great repertoire of unique genes in species accessions could be used to enhance the diversity in future cultivars and reduce potential genetic vulnerability.
‘UF-404’—Dwarf, Red Caladium for Container-forcing and Sunny Landscapes
TLDR
Developing new red lance-leaved caladium cultivars with tuber yields exceeding those of ‘Red Frill’ has been an important objective in the University of Florida’s caladium breeding program, and ‘UF-404’ is an attractive, newred lanceleaved cultivar with a novel coloration pattern.
‘Sea Foam Pink’ Caladium
Caladiums (Caladium ·hortulanum Birdsey, Araceae Juss.) are often grown in containers or planted in the landscape as accent and border plants (Deng, 2018; Evans et al., 1992). They are valued for
Leaf Color Stability during Plant Development as an Index of Leaf Color Variation among Micropropagated Caladium
TLDR
Tissue culture appears to be a useful technique for rapid propagation based on leaf color stability in leaf- color-stahle and leaf-color-unstable cultivars.
The use of Amerindian charm plants in the Guianas
TLDR
The data suggest that similarity in charm species is associated with geographical proximity and not cultural relatedness, and should therefore deserve more scientific and societal attention, especially because there are indications that traditional knowledge is disappearing.
Caladium Height Control with Paclobutrazol Drench Applications
TLDR
There was variation between the experiments for degree of effect with amounts >1 mg, but generally, commercially acceptable height control was provided by paclobutrazol drench treatments at 0.5 and 1.0 mg.
Intergeneric and Interspecific Relationships in Araceae tribe Caladieae and Development of Molecular Markers using Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP)
TLDR
AFLP analysis was used to assess the status of species of Caladium vs. Xanthosoma, both in tribe the Caladieae, and to reassess the position of Hapaline in the same tribe, and showed that AFLP can distinguish between the different species by their unique and different banding patterns.
