The Philodendron Black Cardinal is one of those truly fascinating foliage houseplants, prized for its large foliage that changes with age, starting out a brilliant burgundy then fading through shades of deep green into almost black.

As with all Philodendron, the Black Cardinal houseplant has a super care friendly nature and will create that instant jungle vibe in any home. Ideal for all levels of plant parents, be you a beginner or expert.
