Philodendron domesticum, also called spadeleaf philodendron or burgundy philodendron, is a member of the genus Philodendron. Its arrow-shaped glossy leaves grow to be 22 inches (56 cm) long and 9 inches (23 cm) wide when mature. Burgundy philodendron gets its name from the color of its stems and new growth.
P. domesticum is also commonly grown as a houseplant, and has been shown to remove harmful chemicals from the air.
