Philodendron 'Imperial red'
Philodendron erubescens 'Imperial red'
Common names: Blushing Philodendron
Philodendrons make a wonderful houseplant for beginner plant caretakers! They are easy going, resilient, and come in a variety of colors and shapes. Native to Central and South America and the Caribbean, this family ranges from Plants with trailing leaves to those that grow in denser bushes of leaves. The lovely 'Imperial red' grows glossy red leaves that fade overtime into a deep burgundy and then green. With an appearance similar to the 'Red emerald,' this philodendron does not vine or climb, but rather grows straight upwards in a dense cluster.
