Found this Caladium yesterday. It is very pretty. The leaves are very big and a nice pattern in the leaf.

It was already potted. They had a couple of different ones potted and growing it was hard to choose. Lot of different Caladiums these days.

Yes it is called Sweetheart. I think it is a perfect name. The leaves are very large like a Elephant Ear plant. I am going to put it in the pot with the Black Magic EE. They should look good together.

I think this is the newer Caladiums that will grow in sun because it says sun or shade.

Cinta, I was just about to ask Shade or Sun when I read your message. It's a beauty! Deer resistant?

Yep deer resistant. It is in the deer trail and they have not touched it.
