Philodendron 'Burle Marx's fantasy' a scandent vine with exceptionally patterned overlapping, ovate-cordate leaves with blue-emerald venation. It is said to be a cultivar, originally found in the garden of Burle Marx in Brazil. A very easy and prolific grower.
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.
