  Philodendron 'Xanadu'
From: Paul Resslar <presslar at mailhost.vwc.edu> on 1998.11.18 at 20:14:56(2764)
To All Interested in Philodendron 'Xanadu':

I did an on-line literature search for Philodendron (using First
Search) and found one reference of interest. This plant has a U.S. patent
under the name 'Winterborn.' Check the abstract regarding the origin. It is
not a hybrid, just a selection. If you are interested in pursuing this,
below is the information necessary to find the article:

DATE: 1989 0912
PUB TYPE: Article
PUB AGENCY: US Imprint, not USDA
NAL CALL NO: 156.65 P69

ABSTRACTS: A cultivar of Philodendron Selloum having more and smaller
leaves, withe a red spadix.

Dear Paul,
Thanks for the information.
I have done a long posting in answer to Scott`s posting which addresses this
bit of critical info., and see in your letter that the infloresences have in
fact been seen before, but they are in no way even vaguely simular to the
well known infloresences of P. selloum, and the two CAN NOT be the same.
It was grown from seeds said to be from P. selloum, but there must have been
a mix up or miss-labeling from the seed supplier. Time will tell,
especially if Tom (at MOBOT) manages to find a match for the infloresences
that we collected very recently.
Keep in touch,
Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
