Caladium.  Same Arum family as Taro (Colocasia) but these have very decorative leaves.

 

Thanks very much, John.

Any specific type of Caladium?

 

Update: Looks like this cultivar maybe?

Lots of different ones, John and they are often unnamed varieties or grown from mixed seed.  I've only ever grown a couple of varieties and that was years ago.  Too tender for our damp Plymouth summers outside and they didn't thrive in my small greenhouse. It looks a little like a slightly refined form of the species Caladium bicolor so I'd be tempted to just label them as green, white and red leaved Caladium hybrids.

Thanks again. I'll do that.
