A must-have in any collection of velvet Anthuriums, Anthurium magnificum Linden is a member of section Cardiolonchium. Petioles are quadrate or pentagonal ; red at the base, a little thickened at the apex. Mature leaf blades are coriaceous, olive-green with exception of paler basal veins, cordate-ovate; posterior lobes are wide and rounded, sinus narrow, acute.
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'.
