Flower of the moment: Anthurium

Flower of the moment: Anthurium

These classic flowers have been popping up a lot lately and we're falling for their waxy leaves and long lives.

Normally grown in tropical places, Anthurium's can be a bit pricey. But we think it's worth it. Not only do they seem to last forever, but they come in such a wide array of colors--green, pink, red, yellow and combinations in speckles and splashes. They can be beautiful one or two at a time or stunning in large groupings. We'd never thought to submerge them completely like the green one pictured, but do like the simplicity of the arrangement. And with Valentines Day coming up, why not go for something other than a red rose?
