  [Aroid-l] Hempel and Hemple, the same?
From: lkallus at earthlink.net (Lester Kallus) on 2007.10.17 at 13:13:44(16521)
A friend has an ancient Edison phonograph and recently purchased a replica
of a magazine ad for it. The magazine ad shows opera star Frieda Hempel
posing next to the phonograph.

We're curious if the Caladium Frieda Hemple is named after (and mispelled
after) the opera star.

Does anyone know the history of the naming of this Caladium?
