Mistakenly referred to as “Monkey Orchids,” none of the above species are in the Orchis simia family which is the genus for the monkey orchid. The above orchids are in the Dracula genus. Although they are constantly being misclassified, they still have adorable monkey faces which is good enough for me.
Beautiful Allura Anthurium. The lipstick-red, heart-shaped flower spaths on anthurium make a fun and flashy #Mother’sDay gift. Commonly called flamingo flower, each sumptuous bloom lasts up to 6 weeks. You often see anthurium flowers in upscale tropical cut-flower arrangements because they’re so exotic. Our anthurium grows in a beautiful white ceramic pot and is available in the garden center of your local home improvement store and mass merchandiser. See more here.
Happy Mother’s Day!

“Strategic placement of houseplants means plants can do their air-scrubbing job for every member of the family: place plants in bedrooms, baths, living room, den, and kitchen. While plants won’t remove all the toxins from your air, they are a beautiful and positive step in creating a healthier environment for your home.”
Last day for April Showers!
