Philodendron Black Cardinal sounds scary indeed, but this guy is a real character with so much charm you’ll be back for more.

His foliage is the main attraction because his broad, oval-shaped, glossy leaves emerge a vibrant bronze and mature to almost black. Then, as an added extra, he blooms reddish-black flowers in spring and summer - there isn’t much else like him around!

Black Cardinal is a real conversation starter, so pop him in a shady border close to your seating area or maybe in a container on the deck or poolside if it gets some shade. 

Philodendrons do very well as easy-care houseplants, and Black Cardinal is a dramatic plant to keep on the coffee table or windowsill. Provided he isn’t in direct sunlight or over-watered he’ll happily grow more gothic foliage and flowers for you.

Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I’m a dramatic indoor plant, a shady border filler, and suit a container by the pool.

  • I grow to:  I’ll reach 50cms x 60cms

  • Where to place me: I like bright indirect light indoors and part to full shade outside. 

  • How far to space me:  50cms of elbow space, please

  • Soil Conditions: I liked fertile well-drained soils.

Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into your planters and make an excellent indoor plant for your abode.

We carefully package your plants into a custom size box to ensure safe transport and a healthy plant delivered to your door.
