Flower of the Day – Anthurium

This is my ‘giant’ Anthurium.

Those bracts are the size of my hand – and my hands aren’t dainty little things πŸ™‚Β 

And with all the gusty wind yesterday, I was worried that it would fall over and get damaged.

So I moved it inside.

It stands as high as my hips and at last count, it has 20 flowers in various stages from just blooming to almost dying as well as five new leaves that recently appeared.Β Β I think it loves where it lives amongst all my other pots, so it won’t be inside the house for too long.

Not bad for a rescue plant that was sun and wind damaged when I got it less than six months ago.

This is my next entry for the Flower of the Day (FOTD) photo challenge hosted by Cee’s Photography.
