73 and still gardening

Anthurium scherzerianum ‘Kelly’

Meet Kelly, my Anthurium scherzerianum plant. Each of its mottled-red greenish spathe is about 6 inches long and 5 inches wide; each curly golden-yellow spadix is about 7 inches long and 5mm in diameter.

When this Anthurium scherzerianum came to my garden via Manila last October 2011, I thought that the single spathe attached to the plant was a fake; that it was just sprayed on with red paint to have a mottled effect. However, Kelly proved me wrong with a series of new inflorescence (new spathes sprout non-stop since October 2011); it turns out that each  spathe has a different mottling effect.
