Philodendron Painted Lady Overview
Philodendron 'Painted Lady' is an attractive evergreen perennial shrub species that produces big, attractive oval to lance-shaped, mottled, vibrant yellow-green leaves on fleshy red stems. Thought to have been formed by a hybrid cross between the cultivars Philodendron 'Burgundy' and Philodendron 'Emerald Queen'. This cultivar is well-placed in big spaces and contrasts nicely with green foliage plants. Easily identifiable by its distinctive young yellow foliage mottled with green, the leaves of this cultivar accumulate more green mottling with age and the stems retain their red colour. Leaves are glossy and smooth-edged. This cultivar has a semi-vining habit, it grows upright and spreads outwards erectly, termed self-heading. Best grown in bright light in part shade and with ample warmth, this tender plant doesn't tolerate cold temperatures well. It may be used to create an attractive ornamental display, making this plant a great choice for growing inside as a houseplant. Flowers are small and not notable, arranged on arum-like spathes.
