The Philodendron Imperial Red is a low maintenance foliage plant with large leathery leaves. The leaves develop to a bright red and darken as they mature, turning deep purple, and finally a dark glossy green. It loves to climb and would appreciate a support pole to attach itself to and maintain its upright shape over time. This Philodendron is appreciated for its tropical look and jungle vibes.
