King Anthurium Overview
Anthurium veitchii is an evergreen perennial also known by the common name King Anthurium. It produces un-showy inflorescences and is grown more often for the foliage over the flowers. It has an upright habit, growing without the need for soil substrate and is thus termed epiphytic. In this species the leaves are oblong to oval in shape, with arrow-shaped bases, they are dark green in colour and have a crinkled, corrugated texture. Leaves are also attractively marked with pale green veins. They can reach up to 1.1m in length and these are borne on stems which measure approximately 60cm in height. Flowers are enclosed in white spathe and creamy-pink spadice structures. Originating from Columbia, this species doesn't typically exceed 1.2m in height and 1m in spread.
