The flower of Love (or should be at least) - Anthurium29th February, 2012
Being the last day of love month we thought we would do a small mention on a flower close to heart. Yes, we know red roses are the flower of love however, have you ever wondered what those heart-shaped tropical flowers in Barbados were? Well they are called Anthuriums but are also be known as the Flamingo Flower or Boy Flower because of the structure of the spadix (the piece that sticks off the waxy flower). Such a beautiful flower, Anthurium is a genus of over 800 species.
As can be readily observed, Anthuriums have quite an unusual shape (exactly like a heart) and can be seen in an array of different colours such as pinks, red, whites and even deep purples!
