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