Danadu Cut-Leaf Philodendron
Philodendron x 'Danadu'
Full sun, Partial sun
Water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil - weekly, or more often.
|Average Size at Maturity||Slowly forms foliage clumps 2 to 3 ft. tall and as wide or wider.|
|Bloom Time||Prized for foliage.|
|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.|
|Garden Style||Contemporary, Tropical|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Houseplant, Poolside, Specimen, Woodland Garden, Coastal Exposure|
|Light Needs||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Soil Needs||Tree & Shrub Food|
|Special Feature||Clump Forming, Easy Care, Gift Plant, Tolerates Acidic Soil, Year-round Interest, Compact Form|
|Watering Needs||Water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil - weekly, or more often.|
|Companion Plants||Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia); Bush Lily (Clivia); Gardenia (Gardenia); Canna (Canna); Passion Vine (Passiflora)|
Easily grown in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil. Best foliage color in bright light. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Apply a slow-release fertilizer as new growth begins in spring.
