Anthurium

Saw this Anthurium in the grocery store last week, beside the Phalaenopsis display. Decided it had my name on it. I particularly liked the green on the flowers. I’ve visited Anthurium growers in Hawaii where you see huge greenhouses filled with plants in bloom – the expanse of read flowers is quite lovely. Thought this one would look good among my other indoor plants.

Two days ago I also picked up a Cyclamen.

Again, the flowers of this plant are a bit unusual with the white edges to the deep pink colour. No scent, thankfully. Sometimes Cyclamen will have a rather strong perfume, but this one doesn’t. Lots of small buds still to develop on this plant so it will be showy for a number of weeks. Look forward to enjoying it.

This new plant acquiring is to offset the bleak look of my back deck: the birdbath covered to protect it from the snow, the umbrella stored in the shed, the perennial plants with their leaves gone and the annuals withered and drooping.
