Winter Bloomers 2

This post is about our INDOOR plants that bloomed throughout the winter. Our Anthurium (Anthurium andreanum) blooms almost year round. I do not consider it a “spectacular” plant but it is nice to have something blooming in the cold months. Here are some photos of our plant in February:

A good source of information about the Anthurium plant is the Akatsuka Orchid Farms website. Visit them here.

Our African Violets (Saintpaulia inconspicua) also bloom almost continuously. We have a couple different hybrids but I do not know the exact name. Here is a picture of one from back in September.

Finally, we had several other plants that bloomed for part of the winter but, since they were in our (unheated) greenhouse, the extreme cold killed them:

Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea glabra) – see our previous page here.

And, finally, our Dragon Wing Begonia (see our previous page here.)
