Anthurium, are once-seen, never-forgotten flowers. Their unmistakable glossy heart-shaped bright red flower bract (which gives them their popular name of painter's palette) surrounds the true flowers, which are in the form of a spike (or spathe) at the centre. A tropical perennial herb growing up to 20" tall; it has dark green heart-shaped leathery leaves and a green stem. The flower bracts have a puckered appearance and shine as though they were varnished. Anthuriums will bloom more or less continuously, each plant having around four flowers during the year, each flower lasting about six weeks.
