  Caladium marmoratum
From: Paul Resslar <presslar at vwc.edu> on 1998.01.26 at 09:08:32(1878)
Thanks to Don and Julius for the help. Julius, the origin of the epithet
marmoratum is from the Latin for marble (marmorarius--of marble). The
reference is to the variegation or marbling of the leaves.

>Dear Paul,
Thanks, but I was wondering if anyone knew who/where this name came from
(somewhat like you querry re: C. paradoxum), or if it is one of those
"made-up" jobs.
Sincerely,
Julius
