  Philodendron x evansii
From: "Eric Schmidt" eric.schmidt at ci.orlando.fl.us> on 1999.08.16 at 14:04:05(3584)
Anyone know of a source of Philodendron x evansii? It seems that no one is
growing it commercially in Florida. Also looking for other selfheading
"selloum" types.

Eric,
Rockledge Gardens on US 1 near Cocoa has had Philodendron x evansii,
sellowianum, a 'selloum improved', perhaps eichleri, and a couple of other
large self-headers in the past. These were in 1 gallon nursery cans for about
$9. Last time I was there I did not see them, but you might call and see if
they're going to stock them again. They've had them for a couple years now
off and on.

Hi List

A very quick hello - I live and garden in the southeastern corner of England and have a passion for subtropical style gardening. Aroids are, it is hardly worth saying, indispensible for this - both hardy and tender ones bedded out for the summer. Unfortunately the climate in most of our country makes growing many of the jungly aroids as returning perennials impossible, in spite of our moderate winters, but they do ok for the frost free months with a winter spent under glass just about frost free.

There is a one I have seen on the 'net that seems to be a particularly easy care plant but it doesn't appear to be in cultivation anywhere in Europe apart from maybe Botanical Gardens - that is Philodendron x evansii.

Does anyone on the list know of a commercial source, preferably one that is prepared to ship to the UK? I saw through the archives that a few years ago someone put these in TC, presumably they still are?

With regards to all

Paul

Paul:

All things Brazilian, and especially Philodendron seem to be offered
as seed by Siedel in Sao Paulo. You might contact Brian Williams since he
has seedlings of quite a lot of Siedel's material.

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! all people who want X evansii! the bad news is
the X evansii in the local trade here in California is not what it looks
like in EXOTICA. it is not nearly as extreme. imagine my horror, my
disappointment. i have some old X evansii buried in the Greenhouse, in a
tangle of Monsteras and other stuff, and the leaves are marvellously
attenuated and they simply scream X EVANSII at me. the newer stuff is just
another V shaped leaf. In fact, i would very much like MORE real X
evansii, since it is not a rampant grower for me.

I was hoping somebody would know where to get it.
