Philodendron "Imperial Green" is a large-leaved plant notable for its glossy, leathery foliage and robust constitution. The leaves grow from a central rosette on thick fleshy stems, sometimes tinged deep red. It is a compact variety and does not climb.

"Imperial Green" started as part of a batch of mixed seedlings bought from a Florida nursery in 1977 and is probably a hybrid between two different species of Philodendron. The seedlings were brought to Belgium in the early 1980s where, once they were grown to maturity, were found to be a distinct new variety. As a hybrid, they are infertile, so all propagation is made by tissue culture.
