Most people who own one (or several of these plants) are madly in love with the shape of their leaves and their graceful, drooping growth pattern. Xanadu’s shape makes it a functional ground cover. It is a delicate perennial, but if you cut it back after a freeze, it will grow back soon enough with warmer temperatures. A lovely feature of this plant is its refreshing aroma, so that massing them as fillers in your garden will make it a pleasure to be working near them.
A member of the Philodendron family, it shows well as a tropical plant. Nor does Xanadu mind being in a pot, near the pool or on a patio and, fortunately, it’s also a tidy evergreen, growing to a height of 2′-6″. You’ll be happy with its rich, dense growth and low maintenance and pest resistance. A pleasure to watch it enhance your garden, Xanadu is a showy plant with lots of character.
