Anthurium is a large genus of plants that contains well over 700 species and belongs to the Arum family (Araceae). Anthurium Plants are also referred to as “Flamingo Flower” Plants or “Boy Flower” Plants, both names refer to the structure of the spathe and spadix of the flower. An Anthurium Pant is an easy- care houseplant that produces beautiful long- lasting flowers throughout the year. The waxy ,heart- shaped “flowers” of an Anthurium Plant are really modified leaves called “spathes.” These spathes come in red, pink, white, or salmon and are often used in cut flower arrangements. An Anthurium Plant looks beautiful as a table centerpiece or on a reception desk in an office.
