Philodendron Imperial Red

Philodendron imperial red

Seeing red? The imperial red is guaranteed to bring a renewed sense of calm with its beautifully shiny, ruby-tinged leaves.

To care for your new plant, check it once a week and water when the top inch or so of soil feels dry. The imperial red copes well in most light conditions, but will always do best in bright, indirect light.

Plant Bio

Philodendrons are a varied plant family, with all sorts of colours and characters in the mix. There are around 500 species in this genus, each one completely unique. The one thing they all have in common is large, often heart-shaped leaves. In fact, the name ‘philodendron’ comes from the Greek ‘philo’ for ‘loving’, and ‘dendron’, for ‘tree’.

The imperial red is notable for its beautiful colouring, which starts off as a ruby red and deepens through to burgundy and eventually a dark, glossy green. This makes it a unique addition to any plant collection, particularly for those who enjoy a splash of colour.
