Anthuriums Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Anthuriums

This flower originating from South Africa was brought to the island in the 19th century. It has become the emblematic flower of the island; because it keeps fresh for 3 weeks once cut, the anthurium is in all bouquets. It is very often seen embellishing the lounges of hotels. The flower comes as a large corolla, most of the time red. For them to be available all year long, they have to be cultivated in greenhouses which can be visited, most notably in the south of the island.
