I am sure you know that each month has a at least one dedicated flower which many people use to celebrate birthdays which fall within the month.
By the time April comes around, spring is usually well underway and there are plenty of new blooms to be enjoyed. The birth flowers for April are the daisy and sweet pea.
The wonderful Flower Council of Holland website regularly nominates a Houseplant of the Month and for December they have chosen Anthurium.
Anthurium is attractive, easily looked after and will bring a unique touch of sophistication to any home. The white variety provides serenity while the red and greens are much more vibrant.
Originating in Colombia, Guatemala and the Amazon region of Brazil, in its natural state the Anthurium will be found growing in and on trees with relatively few roots, drawing nutrients from the tree. It prefers a warm spot away from bright sunlight but with high humidity.
