Philodendron fragrantissimum

Philodendron fragrantissimum (Hook.) G.Don is a rather less known, gorgeous Philodendron and rarely seen in collections. It is hemiepiphytic; stem is appressed-climbing or rarely scandent. Petioles  are more or less D-shaped to sharply C-shaped, broadly sulcate adaxially. Leaf blades are ovate to ovate-triangular, subcoriaceous, moderately bicolorous, cordate at base, upper surface semiglossy, lower surface semiglossy.

 

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.
