बस यूँही….

The single Anthurium inflorescence formed a striking contrast against it’s lacquer like bright scarlet background.
Anthurium (Schott, 1829) is a genus of about 1,000 species of flowering plants, the largest genus of the arum family, Araceae.

General common names include anthurium, tailflower, flamingo flower, and laceleaf.

The genus originates from the South and Central Americas, where it is distributed from Northern Mexico to Northern Argentina and parts of the Caribbean.

Anthurium species are seen to often grow as epiphytes on other plants. Some are, however, terrestrial.

The leaves are often clustered and are variable in shape. The inflorescence bears small flowers which are perfect, containing male and female structures. The flowers are contained in close together spirals on the spadix. The spadix is often elongated into a spike shape, but it can be globe-shaped or club-shaped. Beneath the spadix is the spathe, a type of bract. This is variable in shape, as well, but it is lance-shaped in many species. It may extend out flat or in a curve. Sometimes it covers the spadix like a hood.

शुक्र है आँसुओं के रंग नही होते,
वरना रात के तकिये,
सुबह के उजाले में, कई रंग के राज़ बयां कर देते।
