Amarillo is the common name for Scindapsus. This small group consists of twenty tropical climbing plants native to Southeast Asia. They are valued for their large, attractively variegated leaves, which may be heart-shaped or ovate. Depending upon where you live, (common names differ regionally) these plants can be known as Amarillo, Devil's Ivy, Hunter's Robe, Ivy Arum, Pothos Ivy, or Taro Vine. These plants are most often grown as houseplants and are excellent for growing in a hanging basket, training up a moss pole or wall, or for draping over a pillar. The most widely grown variety is S. pictus 'Argyraeus', which climbs up to 40 feet. Its 4-inch-long, heart-shaped leaves are mottled with silver on the top.
