The island of Trinidad in the West Indies has three mountain ranges- Northern Range, Central Range, and Southern Range. The Northern Range, with the highest elevation of the three, also has the highest point on Trinidad, Mt. Aripo at 940 m. During a botanical expendition to Mt. Aripo in July 2005, a preliminary study was made of roadside caladiums. Four Caladium species (C. bicolor, C. picturatum, C. humboldtii, and C. schumburgkii) are found on the island (Boos & Boos 1993), and throughout the Northern Range, Caladium bicolor is a common roadside plant.
