Tropical Anthurium

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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

  3. I got one of these plants last year; it’s nice and green and healthy but it never “bloomed” again!

  4. 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.
