inception in 2000, Classic Caladiums has distinguished itself as
professional producers of caladium bulbs. Under the leadership
of Dr. Robert Hartman (our full-time hands-on CEO of Classic
Caladiums) we have consistently endeavored to bring back the
best qualities of long standing varieties. Field trials and
testing are a major part of our operation - many commercial
caladium varieties were developed in the 1800’s and therefore
our product is like a restored “Classic”. Besides cleaning up
and rejuvenating old varieties, we have launched a number of new
varieties that have been patented and are available exclusively
from Classic. We are also active cooperators with the
University of Florida and other research institutes and
botanical gardens around the US.
Our main 850
acre farm is in Zolfo Springs, FL; our office, processing and
warehouse complex is located nearby in Avon Park, FL.
