Tree Philodendron is a tropical plant native to South America. It has won a Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit!
They are a very popular house plant loved for their showy ornamental foliage. The huge 2 – 3’ shiny dark evergreen leaves are wavy, ruffled, & deeply lobed.
The leaves are often drooping, more so the larger & heavier they get. As the plants mature & cycle leaves, the trunks will develop interesting eye-shaped leaf scar patterns.
They also have very long aerial roots that are quite interesting. This Philodendron’s flowers actually have no petals, but they have a showy green & white spadix & spathe, somewhat similar to a calla lily. The plants enjoy part shade & some a bit of moisture now & then. They grow easily in containers or make a wonderful landscape plant.
