Flamingo Flower


Flamingo flower or Anthurium andraeanum---at a friend's garden in Tagaytay City.
Tagaytay City, about 55 kilometers south of Manila, has a cool and temperate weather because of its high altitude.  It's a perfect place for flowers to grow and bloom all-year round.


Anthurium is a large genus of about 600-800 species of flowering plants belonging to the arum family.  It was discovered in Colombia in 1876.

Dear Luna Miranda, this may be a repeat so I apologize if it is, but I had to leave my computer for a while and I am not sure now whether I have already left a message :( So, just in case I didn't send one I wanted to thank you for sharing these lovely Anthuriums. They are such a beautiful flower and your photos are lovely.
