Slow to moderate-growing tropical evergreen to 2-3’ tall x 3-4’ wide. This handsome variety is perfect for providing a tropical effect to the landscape, and is ideal for smaller areas where a full sized Philodendron selloum might be overpowering. Attractive, deeply-lobed dark green leaves unfurl at the ends of their dark-green leaf stalks to create a lush-looking canopy. Older specimens develop a short trunk that produces aerial roots that sprawl along the soil surface.  Well-suited for shadier parts of the landscape, this low-maintenance variety is great as a background to lower-growing shrubs, annuals or perennials, and is a popular atrium and poolside selection. Also makes a great container specimen, and can be grown indoors if provided ample light. Thrives in a rich, well-drained soil with regular watering, and while able to tolerate a good amount of sun in coastal climates, prefers a filtered-sun to light-shade exposure in warmer inland climates.
