A low-maintenance green giant that will bring a splash of tropical forest to any garden. Its leaves and ability to climb allow for a truly immersive beauty.
Indigenous to South America, this evergreen shrub is also known as Split Leaf Philodendron, Red Emerald, Horsehead Philodendron, and several other common names. In other languages, it is also called “monkey’s banana”.
The easiest way to identify it is by its large bright green glossy leaves with indented lobes. It flourishes in summer, bearing showy flowers ranging from burgundy shades to lavender and white, although indoor plants usually don’t produce them. Its fruits resemble a berry and are red, orange, and white.
Sturdy and easy to care for, this plant will cease to grow upwards with age and will lie along the ground. Keep in mind that it is poisonous, so keep away from pets and children.
