Philodendron 'painted lady' is a very unique and rare philodendron on most tropical garden lovers and aroid addicts "must have" wish list. Well look no further, we are growing these beauties in our nursery and should have a select handful available in the next 3-4 months. The parents of 'painted lady' are philo. 'emerald queen' and philo. 'burgundy'. The new leaves are born a strawberry color with heavy reddish pink mottling in the leaves. As the leaves age they also grow in size and change color from the starwberry pinkish/red to a yellow/lemon-lime color with green mottling. Then they become a more true green with a light mottling in the leaves. The 'painted lady' philodendron grows to be about 6-7 ft high and can get fairly wide as it continues to grow along a main central lead producing roots along the way. Philodendrons are great climbers and can attach themselves to grow on a wall and tree/palm trunk for a spectacular display. Contact us to get on the wish list.
Though be aware for all you pet owners and parents to check whether any plant has poisonous elements to it before introducing it as a house plant. The philodendron family is considered poisonous if parts of the actual plant are ingested. Here is a link for your concerns on the symptoms and treatment for philodendrons because we are animal lovers and parents as well.
