They were all bright pink in the center with a green edge. Now they’re really a dull cream color.

Caladium requires shade. If it is getting too much sun, the colors will bleach out. This is what Longfield Gardens says: SHADE AND SUN: Caladiums are ideal for shady yards and gardens. In southern areas they grow best in full to partial shade. In northern areas, most caladiums can also be grown in the sun as long as they get enough water and their leaves are shielded during the hottest part of the day.
