|Botanical Pronunciation||fil-oh-DEN-dron SEL-loh-m|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow growing to 6 to 10 ft. tall, equal width.|
|Design Ideas||Unmatched by any other big-leafed tropical, this foliage plant plays an important role in creating jungle-like exotic compositions in warm winter gardens. With its lax habit and tolerance of both sun and considerable shade, it works in foundation plantings under shade arbors, as a focal point of sequestered entries or as a standout against hot-colored walls of postmodern architecture. Will grow quite well in large containers, wintered indoors in colder climates.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Houseplant, Poolside, Specimen, Woodland Garden|
