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.
Spectacular red spathes make Anthurium andreanum a popular houseplant. Most winters I have one to bring a bright spot of tropical beauty to my home. Today I’m sharing just a few photos of the pretty red spathes or “flowers”. The spathes can last more than a month.
I hope the “flowers” brighten your winter day.

They really make a dramatic presentation, don’t they? Quite striking!
Yes the bright red “flowers” or spathes are dramatic. I love how long they last.
Thanks Carol. These photos of your anthurium did brighten my day.
I’m so glad
This is one of my favorite houseplants! I have grown them for years and love the bright red spathes! Thank you for the smile!
I’m glad you liked them – have a great week!
I like anthuriums and these are great as indoor plants.
I like your photo collection.
Have a great day!

Carol – I had one of these Anthuriums for four years, and it was glorious. It started to fade, and I let it go. How long do you find that they last? Thanks for linking to Mosaid Monday!
I can get over 2 years and then they get rather spindly and need to go in a huge pot. I have no room for that and let them go.
A wonderful bloom, indeed. I got one of my mother in law.
I love your card with thanks and the manatees! I was hoping to see some this weekend but we didn’t. Love your post!
thanks – have a great Monday!

This is a beautiful flower, Carol! It is nice to have indoor flowers in winter.
I got one of these plants last year; it’s nice and green and healthy but it never “bloomed” again!
That is so sad. I wonder what is wrong with it. Is it close to a window to get filtered light?
Beautiful. Is it a houseplant that blooms annually or all the time. Thanks for sharing @aclwcc.
Anthuriums bloom all year and the spathes last for several months.
Cool plants 🙂
You seem to be very good with Anthurium. This one is lovely!
How timely this is! I received one of these plants as a gift, and while I am a gardener, houseplants are not my forte. Yours is beautiful. Instant tropical mood. Thank you kindly for sharing with the Weekend Garden & Tea Party.
Beautiful Anthurium , Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.
