  Re: [aroid-l] Philo cold hardiness and O/T Cyclanthaceae ID

Adam, I have seen P. bippennatifidum planted year round as far north as
Hilton Head Island South Carolina and are fairly common on the coast of
Georgia as well. I believe this species is from southern Brasil where frosts
and freezes are not unheard of. It would be interesting to find out the cold
hardiness of other typically tropical aroids from that region and adjacent
Argentina. I know at least several other Philos and a few Anthuriums live in
that range. Not sure of the species though. Maybe Eduardo Gonclaves can
give us some clues. Michael M.
