There are many anthuriums which survive our temperate climate here in So Cal, and this is one of the nicer ones. The Anthuriums with spectacular flowers tend to be more tropical, but the ones with huge or interesting leaves do better here. This one has extremely deeply divided leaves that give the plant a spidery look. It has beautiful orange colored seed pods on the end of short, thick, dark green stalks.
