  Philo. "xanadu"
From: "Julius Boos" <ju-bo at email.msn.com> on 1998.10.24 at 18:56:18(2721)
Dear All,
Does anyone know the origins/parentage of Philodendron "xanadu"? I`ve
heard several stories, but no facts.
Thanks and cheers,
Julius

Neil, Philodendron 'Xanadu' is a hybrid one of whose parents is
P. bipinnatifidu,/selloum ---- don't know the other parent.

Julius, I would almost have bet my life (before I looked) that I
got the info from Graf's EXOTICA; but, after looking. I find that
P. 'Xanadu' is not even in the massive tomes! And now I have no
recollection as to where I read it. It will probably come to me--
at which time I will alert you and the rest of the world .... Hope
I didn't dream it!

We too have this as `correctly' called Philodendron Winterbourn. Maybe
that name is a beter lead into finding out the parentage.

I have a question about "xanadu" AKA everything else. Is this the
Philodendron I see used as ground cover at Disney? If so, is it true that
Disney purchased virtually all of the stock and that it's no longer
available as a result? I ask because a friend of mine saw it at Disney and
wanted it. I thought it would make a perfect birthday present and was told
I was out of luck.
