Anthurium is truly an underrated houseplant. You've probably seen it in offices, as it tolerates low light and is extremely low maintenance. These one-petal flowers provide a lot of smooth elegance and a bright pop of color wherever your home needs it. What's most extraordinary is that you can provide consistency through your home décor with just one plant. Take a few blooms and put them in vases as a matching element to link that color through a room. Even one bloom alone looks beautiful in a thin vase. And you won't have to change them out constantly—these are incredible cut flowers that can last up to a month in water. What's more, Dutch Red delivers blooms multiple times throughout the year, and cutting the blooms promotes new growth, so you'll have plenty to work with. Anthurium 'Red'
