What are the Characteristics of Anthurium
Anthuriums are distinct from other flowers in a variety of ways. Their vibrant, glossy petals, called spathes, are not only visually stunning but also remarkably long-lasting, often staying fresh for several weeks. Interestingly, the true flowers of anthurium are not these colorful spathes, but the spiky appendage in the center known as the spadix. This unique structure adds an exotic appeal to the flower. Furthermore, anthuriums aren't just available in the typical red; they come in an array of colors including pink, white, and green, offering a wealth of design possibilities. Anthurium are surprisingly easy to care for, making them a perfect choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.

How to Use Anthurium for Your DIY Event
An anthurium's striking shape and bright color make it perfect for a standalone arrangement, or as part of a tropical arrangement. Pairing anthuriums with other round, petal-heavy flowers can create an interesting contrast in shape and texture. For a more modern look, use a single variety of anthuriums in a limited color palette. Alternatively, you can use anthuriums to add a pop of color to a more traditional arrangement.
- Bridal Bouquet: If you're looking to create a bouquet with a tropical flair. For a more traditional bouquet with a unique twist, consider pairing anthuriums with roses, carnations, or stock. The contrast of the smooth, waxy texture of anthuriums against the delicate petals of these classic blooms offers an unexpected and visually appealing contrast.
- Bud Vases: Anthuriums are an excellent choice for use in bud vases due to their bold, visually striking appearance. Their large, glossy spathes and unique structure allow them to stand alone as a centerpiece even in a small vase. This makes them a cost-effective option for decorating a large event, as each bud vase only requires one or two stems.
- Centerpieces & Large Arrangements: Anthuriums also make striking additions to large centerpieces or arrangements. Their large, vibrant spathes provide a captivating focus, drawing the eye and giving the arrangement a vibrant tropical feel. In a large arrangement, anthuriums can be paired with complementary flowers such as hydrangeas or orchids, or greenery like monstera leaves or ferns to create a lush, tropical feeling. When used in this way, their unique form and texture can break the monotony of traditional arrangements and offer an exotic twist. Use 1-2 stems in centerpieces to ensure that the anthurium stands out and use 3-4 perfectly placed blooms in larger arrangements for that special touch.
