The exotic looking flowers have a long connection with fashion, featuring in editorials, brand campaigns and international fashion weeks. American fashion brand Rodarte created stunning anthurium head pieces for their AW2019 catwalk show, the bold coloured blooms offset the old Hollywood glamour of their fantastical designs. A glossy red anthurium featured in a Marc Jacobs beauty campaign, the hue of the flower perfectly coordinated with the model’s lipstick shade. Minimalist brand Mansur Gavriel often uses anthurium in their seasonal campaigns as well as in floral arrangements in their New York store.

O My Anthurium! Sweet red Anthurium!

Came to my life, gorgeous and adorable

Thou give me a new direction

For a future we’ll share on.

O My Anthurium! Sweet red anthurium!

Taught me not to count the time left

But the treasured moments

Of happiness thy spent together.

O My Anthurium! Sweet red Anthurium!

Without thee what life would be?

Thy heart is sober

Thy life is over.
