Re: [Aroid-l] Cold-hardiest Climbing Aroids?

Hi Ray,
There's a plantsman in the Chapel Hill area who has had Monstera deliciosa growing in his garden for at least 5 years or more now...granted it doesn't climb those trees like it does in Florida but it is hardy here.  We also have Philodendron bipinnatitidum (selloum) growing for the second year in the ground here and it has done amazingly well...in full sun even.  I've also seen it hardy in the Fayetteville, NC area.  Petra

Subject: [Aroid-l] Cold-hardiest Climbing Aroids?

I dont expect anyone to tell me there are any climbing Aroids that could live in my climate (USDA 7b-8a) which can drop to 10-15F each winter, but do any of the experts know which of the climbing aroids can be considered the hardiest?  I have heard Epipremnum aureum is growing as far north as Southern Georgia (USA) but probably not permanently.  Ive seen it personally growing quite tall up pine trees as far north as Jacksonville Florida.  Are there any other climbers (Rhaphidophora? Monstera?) that could take some winter cold with minimal damage?
