A very tough, hardy, adaptable, long-lived anthurium that flowers consistently and can reach 4' in height. Found by Lester Callus in 1979 in a Oaxaca mercado.

According to Callus, "The email from a Central American Anthurium expert said 'This looks exactly like the many local backyard hybrids between native white-flowered spp. from Sect. Calomystrium such as A. huxtlense and A. armeniense and the old F1 hybrids between andraeanum and nymphaeipholium, etc. that dominate the cut flower trade as 'andraeanum'. They are readily available in local nurseries across southern Mxico and Central America.' " http://www.kallus.com/aroids/anthurium/anthoaxaca.htm
