Unlike most other Philodendrons that are native the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, 'Imperial Red' is a relatively new hybrid that has been bred specifically to be a houseplant.
Growing with an upright habit, the stems are burgundy tinged and the foliage is nothing short of spectacular, with bright red new leaves that darken to deep maroon before finally maturing to dark, glossy green. This is a magnificent houseplant and will make a spectacular focal point.
'Imperial Red' is a moderately vigorously growing plant that will bring an exotic touch to any room, where it will thrive in bright, indirect light, looking incredibly handsome all year round.Not only spectacular to look at, leafy tropical houseplants also provide air-cleaning benefits. It has been found that houseplants can actually improve the environment in our homes, clearing the air, removing toxins and adding valuable oxygen to the air that we breathe.
Supplied as a potted plant in a 14cm nursery and growing to a height and spread of 1.2m (4ft).
