The popular Anthurium flower is not a flower, but is really a coloured waxy leaf (the spathe) from which the spadix grows. The spadix is a form of fleshy spike that is covered in a cluster of small flowers, an effect known as inflorescence. These florets are the real Anthurium flowers and appear like a rough surface on the spadix. There are no flowers on the spathe and the plant as a whole can reach between 15 and 20 inches in height. The leaves are also able to swivel themselves to face the sun, in the manner of a sunflower.
