I’m starting to get a nice little collection of Anthuriums. Also known as tailflower, flamingo flower, and laceleaf, the flower of this tropical plant is quite impressive, but it’s my latest acquisition that is a royal stunner. With dramatic burgundy flowers that can also range from black to brown (I’ve been watching the colour lighten as the flowers age), meet the Black Queen Anthurium I couldn’t walk past recently.
I’ve now not one – not two – but three very pretty Poinsettias and all of them are currently in flower. I just love the effect the cold weather has on my plants.
