Purple Anthurium Flower

Anthurium


This is a tropical American genus that is made up of some 900 species and is a member of the arum (Araceae) family. They are very often used as indoor plants, they are also very popular in tropical gardens. They represent  a cluster of upright stems bearing large, deep green, lance- to arrowhead shaped leaves. The flowers are topped with heart-shaped bract or spate look like leaves that often become purple, red, cream, or pink as the long flower spike or spadix develops. Anthuriums are also grown as cut flowers. Although some species are used in medicine where they occur naturally, all parts of the plant are toxic and such use, even externally, is not encouraged.
