Philodendron corsinianum x

Philodendron corsinianum x is a gorgeous and very rarely offered for sale hybrid, thought to be the first man-made philodendron hybrid. Created in the 1880’s at the public gardens of ‘La Cascine’ in Florence, Italy and named after Prince Corsini. It is said to be a hybrid of Philodendron verrucosum and Philodendron pinnatifidum. It grows enormous. Its leaves are wide, cordate, very ornamental and luminous with undulate margins.

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.
