Anthurium, Greek for tail flower, is native to tropical America. Other names for the plant include Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower, or Tail Flower. This waxy colored spathe often comes in red and other shades of red. The actual flowers grow from the spadix that looks like a spikey stem, surrounded by the spathe. They flower almost continuously. The stems range from 15-20 inches. Anthuriums, a popular foliage plant, are grown for their bright and attractive colors. The Anthurium is poisonous and if consumed, will cause stomach irritation.
