Anthuriums are herbaceous epiphytes native to tropical America, a genus of more than 800 species found in the New World tropics from Mexico to northern Argentina and Uruguay. The anthurium is also known as Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower (Flamingo Lily) or Tail Flower.They are grown for their brightly colored flower spathes and their ornamental leaves.
Over the holidays, my sister bought me a new little anthurium. I do love their red “flowers” which last for a long time. As I mentioned the other week in my post, Add Farmhouse Beauty With Plants, they make a bright addition to your home decor especially in winter. The sculptural leaves are striking.
The anthurium plant is grown as a houseplant in cooler climates and as a landscaping plant in USDA zones 10 or higher.
