Anthurium arisaemoides

A wonderful, bullate-leaved, rare Anthurium arisaemoides Madison belongs to the Dactyllophyllium Section and is a herbaceous evergreen plant. It has  terete or obtusely D-shaped or flattened petioles, and trisect leaf blades which are light green to dark green and very conspicuously bullate and subcoriaceous.


The genus name Anthurium is derived from Greek ánthos "flower" + ourá "tail" + New Latin -ium -ium . A very  literal translation of this would be 'flowering tail'.
