Philodendron xanadu is a plant belonging to the family Araceae and subgenus Meconostigma, one of three subgenera within the genus Philodendron. This plant is native to Brazil, but is widely cultivated as a landscape plant in warm temperate climates.
The philodendron “Xanadu”, sometimes referred to as philodendron “Winterbourn”, is a large compact easy to grow plant. Each shiny green leathery leaf has 15-20 distinct lobes. A Xanadu is often wider than it is tall, reaching a height of 2-4ft. and a width of 3-5ft in ideal conditions. The leaves of this beautiful, exotic looking foliage plant can be as large as 16″-18″ long and 7″-14″ wide. Unlike many philodendrons, the Xanadu is an upright plant not a climber or vine. The best part is, the older a Xanadu gets the better it looks. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
