Caladium Types There are two distinct
types of Caladiums, based on leaf morphology, though some
growers refer to a third (Dwarf ) group: Fancy Leaf and Strap
Leaf varieties. Fancy Leaf Caladiums have broad heart-shaped or
arrowhead-shaped leaves and generally grow taller than Strap
Leaf and Dwarf varieties. The petiole (stem) attachment is
within the leaf blade. Strap Leaf Caladiums have a petiole
(stem) attachment at the edge of the leaf blade and generally
have pointed, more narrow, heart shaped leaves producing a
compact plant with more leaves than fancy leaved cultivars.
Strap varieties are ideal for pot production and hanging
baskets. Dwarf Caladiums comprise both fancy (Candidum Jr.) and
strap (Gingerland and Miss Muffet) leaf varieties and are
intermediate in size and compact in habit making them ideal for
pot plant and hanging basket production.
