Philodendrons are a group of plants that have long been used for both ornamental and edible purposes. There are about 8,000 species in about 3,000 genera and families worldwide. Many of these species are common garden plants but there are many endemic species as well. The genus Philodendron includes some 400 species worldwide including grasslike plants known as philodendrons. These plants can be grown in containers, rock gardens and hanging baskets with other indoor floral items.
Philodendrons were first introduced into cultivation in the 17th century in Europe and Asia where it was used to decorate gardens and to provide shade for gardens during the mid-day heat of the summer months.
Today it is one of the most popular garden plants enjoyed by landscapers around the world as it produces abundant flowers throughout the year making them highly attractive to both homeowners and gardeners alike.
Philodendrons reach their peak flower production at around 20 years of age but some live to be upwards of 50 years old which makes them an excellent choice for potting up alongside other neglected perennial flowers such as roses or irises for their long life spans.
