Anthuriums are members of the Arum lily family (Araceae). A common feature of the Araceae is the typical, cup-shaped inflorescence: the arum. It consists of the spathe and the spadix, on which the flowers are situated. The Anthurium is an ‘evergreen’ which can produce flowers all year round. Both the flowers and the leaves are harvested from the crop. Anthuriums originate in the Andes Mountains of Central and South America, where they grow in shady and humid locations. There are more than 100 different varieties with a wide range of sizes, shapes and colours.
