One that we are growing is Philodendron corcovadense.
I believe it is native to southern Brazil. I had seen
this growing in a yard of a house near Leu Gardens for
20 years. It is a self-header that grows 2-3ft tall
and survived the 20F freeze in 12/89. Some stems froze
back, some were only defoliated. It is like a small
version of P. bipinnatifidum but with entire leaves.
It even has that odor that P. bipinnatifidum has when
a leaf is cut or broke off. I drove by that house one
day and it was being renovated. The Philos were in a
pile in the driveway. I stopped and asked if I could
have them and they said yes. I "rescued" them and
planted them out at Leu Gardens. I have never seen
them for sale, hopefully they can get into tissue
culture. Here is a link to a photo;
