Anthurium Dressleri is an exotic, bright, colorful petals that are certain to brighten up any room or office. It’s easy to care for, requiring only moderate temperature, light, and water. Its bold, pointed leaves make it a statement-making style choice for any modern interior.
Anthurium dressleri is the holy grail of Anthurium collections. This species has large, heart-shaped leaves that exhibit a deep, glossy purple emergent coloration. The leaves have a velvety texture and purple veining, adding to their allure.
The easiest way to identify Anthurium dressleri is by using its leaves. The leaves are heart-shaped, with well-defined lobes, sometimes overlapping each other.
The color is dark green, with a velvety texture and a slight shimmer. The frond is slightly more prominent than the other veins and is light green in color.
The leaves have long petioles with a purplish color on the bottom.
Unlike other Anthurium species, such as A. crystallinum or A. clarinervium, Anthurium dressleri does not have white leaf veins.
Why is it called “Anthurium Dressleri Croat”?
Anthurium dressleri takes its name from two famous botanists. First, it was named “dressleri” in honor of American botanist Robert Louis Dressler, who spent his life documenting and describing hundreds of plant species, mostly orchids.
The suffix “Croatian” is used in botanical nomenclature to refer to Thomas Croat, an American botanist and aroid expert who has so far collected more than 85,000 species.
