Thank you all for the great feedback concerning P. selloum, bipinnatifidum
and others.  It definitely seems
a lot more work on this group is necessary to sort these plants out.  The
apparent variability of each doesn't
help matters.

Tony, thank you for the info on the selloum mentioned by Petra.  Wow, who
woulda thunk it.....North Carolina!  It's certainly one hardy Philodendron,
and is exceptional considering the other plantings have not survived.  I
would never have thought any Philodendron species would survive 0 degree
temperatures with minimal or no protection, even selloum.  The fact that it
is now 'shaded out' tells me it may have a bit warmer microclimate under a
canopy of trees which may help it survive future winters, but will not be
good for summer growth in
deep shade.

How large does this plant get during the summer?  3 or 4 foot leaves, or
much smaller?
