I bear in mind this flowering plant so nicely from childhood as a result of I known as them “pinocchios”. You might know Anthurium as tailflower, flamingo, or laceleaf relying on the place you reside on this planet. (Notice: In Greek, the title means tail flower, almost definitely as a result of the flower appears prefer it has a tail.)
The commonest Anthurium that the majority of us are acquainted of right here in Europe are the purple ones. We’ve got the purple anthurium in almost each backyard store.
However do you know that there are MANY colours? You possibly can even purchase the silk model in loopy tones like cobalt blue and neon yellow and a few flower firms dye the true ones. However the colours that develop in nature are usually within the household of purple and orange, although you may spot inexperienced and cream ones too.
Final month my good friend Gabi and I have been in Hamburg and he or she purchased a complete field of purple ones on the flower store. She properly provided me some, however I don’t like purple flowers (included purple roses!), so I politely declined. I don’t know why, I simply don’t get pleasure from purple flowers, not even on the balcony. Anyway, the purple anthurium appear to be plastic to me, and are too shiny. However after some weeks of seeing them popping up randomly in folks’s houses, in tones of orange and cream, and on Instagram, in campaigns, I assumed HMMMMM…. May these terrestrial-looking flowers be the following pompus grass? What do you suppose?
