Anthurium

Anthurium

Anthuriums are herbaceous epiphytes, native to tropical America. Anthurium is a genus of more than 800 species found in the New World tropics from Mexico to northern Argentina and Uruguay. The Anthurium is also known as Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower (Flamingo Lily) or Tail Flower. Anthuriums are grown for their brightly colored flower spathes and their ornamental leaves. The red, heart-shaped flower of Anthuriums is really a spathe, or waxy, modified leaf flaring out from the base of a fleshy spike (spadix) where the tiny real flowers grow. The anthurium flowers appear as a roughness on the spadix as compared to a smooth spadix. Most common colors of anthuriums are red and shades of red.

Fertilizer

A quick word on nutrition. Most growers use a slow time release fertilizer on their plants. Fertilizing should not be an issue for quite a few months. If you are going to fertilize, use a light solution of a 3:1:2 ratio and it is probably best to dilute to 1/4 strength.

Rose

A rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae.
Large group of flowering shrubs, most with showy flowers that are single-petalled to fully double petalled. Leaves are typically medium to dark green, glossy, and ovate, with finely toothed edges. Vary in size from 1/2 inch to 6 inches, five petals to more than 30, and in nearly every color. Often the flowers are very fragrant. Most varieties grow on long canes that sometimes climb. Unfortunatly, this favorite plant is quite susceptible to a variety of diseases and pests, many of which can be controlled with good cultural practices.

Types of Roses

There are three different types of roses: bush, climbing and shrub. Rose bushes produce blooms at the top of the bush. They can grow from a few inches high such as miniatures or up to 6 feet tall such as hybrid teas, floribundas and rose trees. Climbing roses have long canes that can be trained to grow up a trellis or wall, such as rambler and trailing roses. Shrub roses make good hedges and are easy to care for. Some are disease resistant and winter hardy, such as the Knock Out rose.
