73 and still gardening

Love is…

…seen best in nature. And one of the plants showing their hearts to the world is the Anthurium. Since 1980s, I’ve been planting some varieties of Anthuriums because of their heart-shaped flowers and ornamental leaves. Also, they have a long vase life of about six weeks (and even more depending on the variety and season.)

According to the flower experts, this herbaceous epiphyte is one of the most popular tropical plants with  more than 800 species!

Ahh…they give love in abundance…

Anyway, the one in the photo is a red Anthurium flower with a colorful spadix (a combination of white, pink and orange.)
