I've been looking at photos and reading about different Caladium's and I came across Caladium 'Reine de Danemarck' in our database but upon further research cannot find any information for a Caladium by this name. I googled for a translation for Reine de Danemark and the translation is: Queen of Denmark so I tried searching for a Caladium with the cultivar name 'Queen of Denmark' but found nothing. Margrethe II is the Queen of Denmark; I googled for a Caladium cultivar by the name of 'Margrethe', also to no avail.

... just wondering if there truly is a Caladium cultivar by that name?

@eclayne added the plant in March 2015 and he wouldn't have added it without a source, I'm sure.

Ok, Thanks zuzu ... I just couldn't find anything on it and was curious when trying to find photos.

Lin, If you paste Caladium 'Reine de Danemarck' into a google search and scroll past the garden.org links you'll see several old books and journals that list Caladium cultivars, including this one. The spelling varies (Danemarck or Danemark). Many may no longer be available but at least a few oldies are; John Peed, Carolyn Whorton, ...
