Gardening / Planting in the fine weather

 

This fine weather has everyone out gardening and planting in the West of Ireland. With the fresh vegetables like potatoes, carrots and cabbage planted, lets hope we can sample some of these home grown delights very soon 🙂

Anthurium Andreanum

This plant is a cultivated hybrid of an Anthurium andreanum and belongs to the family of the Araceae. The flowers are tiny on the yellow stem.

Anthurium is a large species, belonging to the arum family (Araceae). Anthurium can also be called “Flamingo Flower” or “Boy Flower”, both referring to the structure of the spathe and spadix.

Anthurium flowers are small and develop crowded in a spike on a fleshy axis, called a spadix, a characteristic of the Araceae. The flowers on the spadix are often divided sexually with a sterile band separating male from female flowers. This spadix can take on many forms (club-shaped, tapered, spiraled, and globe-shaped) and colors (white, green, purple, red, pink, or a combination).
