I got this one because I love the curly leaves. The color is the same as several varieties I already have but the curly, small leaves are different.

I wish I knew but I don't, rarely are plants named at nurseries here.

With or without a name, it's spectacular! Keeps catching my eye even in mini form on the forum page.

Very pretty Jonna. I was just ordering some bulbs from Caladiums 4 Less a few days ago and saw one similar.

It might be C. Buck Rogers http://www.caladiumbulbs4less.com/servlet/the-492/10-Grade-%...

Beyond DNA testing, there's no way to know for sure.

It certainly looks a lot like it. I don't know if the smaller leaf size and extra curliness of mine is from nature or nurture. I've planted it in the ground near my other caladiums, no direct sun this time of year but a small amount in the summer. I hope it is happy and we'll see if the size of the leaves and the curliness changes.

It looks like either Florida Red Ruffle or maybe Red Frill but my money's on the Red Ruffle.
Here's one of mine

That does look like it. Unfortunately, I planted it in the ground and it is looking very sad. I don't know what the problem is, it's possible my dog peed on it and it is possible that it isn't getting enough sun? I washed it off, put a pot in front of it as a shield and I'm hoping. I may get another one and keep it in a pot. I really like it and I feel bad that it isn't liking where I put it.
