Shangri-La is a new form of the popular “split leaf philodendron” that offers consumers a more elegant and well-kept looking plant. Trialed for years before release, Shangri-La’s habit is uniformly dense, clumping and will not vine. This habit makes it more visually appealing than other selections of philodendron. It produces highly fingered (dissected) leaves at the juvenile stage, unlike other varieties. This gives it the look of a mature split leaf philodendron on a much more diminutive plant. It also produces noticeably more stems per plant, which adds to its robust look. It is perfect for indoor gardens, desktops, offices, smaller containers and protected outdoor landscape use.
