Anthurium bakeri

A lovely, 'strappy-leaved' Anthurium bakeri Hook.f. belongs to section Porphyrochitonium and is a semi-pendent, herbaceous evergreen species with quite compact growth. The leaf blades are narrowly elliptic-lanceolate to narrowly oblanceolate. Upper surface of the blades is matte, lower surface paler and matte with reddish-brown glandular punctations.


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'.
