It was the other way around--Dr. Croat, who wrote the actual description of
Philodendron xanadu Croat, Mayo + Boos, decided to us the 'patented' name,
"Xanadu", as the specific name of this new Philodendron, which belongs to
the group of 'self-heading' species the Meconostigmas, since it was already
so well known and widely used in the commercial horticultural trade, where
millions are sold every year, all originating from tissue culture.

I hope that this clears things up.
