Adam, I have seen P. bippennatifidum planted year round as far north as 
Hilton Head Island South Carolina and are fairly common on the coast of 
Georgia as well.  I believe this species is from southern Brasil where frosts 
and freezes are not unheard of.  It would be interesting to find out the cold 
hardiness of other typically tropical aroids from that region and adjacent 
Argentina.  I know at least several other Philos and a few Anthuriums live in 
that range.  Not sure of the species though.  Maybe Eduardo Gonclaves can 
give us some clues.           Michael M.
