Philodendron 'Little Phil' is a relatively new dwarf Philodendron cultivar from Australia. It is a very compact self-header growing in clumps. A very easy and prolific grower, adapted to very low light levels. Grown for ground cover and/ or green walls.
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.
