Anthurium superbum Madison, Selbyana 5:94 (1978). Anthurium superbum is native to seasonally inundated forest along the Rio Napo in Ecuador, where it grows epiphytically above high water level. The dark purple-green bullate leaves held stiffly erect are very striking, and unlike any other anthurium. A large crop of seedlings is now being grown at Selby for distribution to botanical gardens and horticulturists.
