  [aroid-l] Philodendron x evansii

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
