Anthurium
Flaming Flower

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 indoor plants produce beautiful, long-lasting, waxy, heart- shaped “flowers” which are really modified leaves called “spathes” throughout the year.  Anthurium spathes come in red, pink, white, and salmon and can be used in cut flower arrangements. Anthurium plants look beautiful as table centerpieces or on a reception desk in an office. These plants are poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
