Aroids are frequently used as landscape subjects in the Medellin area. Sometimes very effectively, some times no so.
This is a large plant growing top about 2.5 meters. Its exposure to sun varies through the day as there are large trees to the south of the planting and a house to the north. It blooms pretty much throughout the year. It appears to need little care here as the garden was nearly abandoned for a good part of a year, perhaps more. Recently there has been an effort to clean-up and maintain the area. Note the Dieffenbachia toward the right hand side of the photo.
This is a detail shot of the inflorescence. The tubes are a dark purple on the outside. One of these days I will snag one and see what color they are inside.
Philodendron 1 is being used as a foundation planting beneath trees which provide shade a good part of the day. I think that later in the year it will be exposed to nearly full sun. It stands about 1 meter high.
Shrubby Philodendron 2 receives full afternoon sun. It stands about 2-2.5 meters high. I have seen it in several landscapes in this neighborhood.
Once again in the Conquistadores neighborhood. Syngonium is often used as a ground cover here. It appears to be tough and take a fair amount of neglect. One needs to keep it trimmed away from the tree truncks as it develops its mature leaf form rapidly as it starts to climb.
Spathyiphyllum is often seen as a bedding plant, along foundations and sometimes as an accent. Here it is called anturio blanco or White Anthurium. I have seen it in a wide range of exposures including nearly full sun. Where it gets sun most of the day it needs plenty of water.
