Philodendron 'Anderson's red' variegata is a very easy to grow hybrid. There are two sets of information circulating about this plant: one is that it is a variegated variety of Philodendron 'Anderson's red', a hybrid of uncertain parentage from Ed Hummel. The other information is that this is a hybrid between Philodendron 'White knight' and Philodendron 'Pink Princess' and comes from Indonesia.It certainly bares the qualities of both of these very popular variegated plants. It is in itself very unusual, with every leaf producing unpredictable colours and patterns.
From the Modern Latin genus name Philodendron (Schott, 1830), from Greek philodendron, neuter of philodendros "loving trees," from philo- "loving" (see philo-) + dendron "tree" (from PIE *der-drew-, from root *deru- "to be firm, solid, steadfast," also forming words for "wood, tree"). The plant so called because it clings to trees.
