  Anthurium 'Lazarz'
From: Eric Schmidt <leu242 at yahoo.com> on 2007.01.19 at 19:25:17(15107)
Anyone know what species Anthurium 'Lazarz' might be?
It is about 2 1/2 ft tall and has tolerated
temperatures down into the low-mid 30sF with no
problem. Here is a photo

Dear Eric,

Nice photo! I used to sell this Anthurium 'cultivar" (not species!) when I
worked at a fancy-pants nursery out W. of WPB, it comes out of tissue
culture and looks TO ME like it might be a hybrid between a birdsnest-type
Anthurium sp. and an Anthurium w/ cordate or saggitate -shaped leaves
species, Don Bittel may have some ideas or information as I do believe he
has made some crosses like this.

Good Luck,

What colour are the flowers? It looks a little like A. watermaliense.

It looks like a anth. watermaliense hybrid we did a few years ago.
Excelsa Gardens has been producing it for about 5 years. It has a
blackish flower which is the biggest tip off that it is a watermaiense
hybrid. When we made the hybrid it was with anth. tarapotense and anth.
watermaliense. When you hybridize with watermaliense and most birdnest
varieties they turn out looking like what they are calling lazarz.

Thanks all for the info. It did appear that it might
have A. watermaliense in it. What does Anthurium
tarapotense look like? Does anyone have an image? I
can't find any on the internet, hardly any information
pages at all.

Dear Eric:

Anthurium tarapotense is a typical bird's nest Anthurium with
the blade acute at the base. While A. watermaliense is a Pachyneurium
it has posterior lobes. Did you check Tropicos to see if there is an
image there? If not I could get one scanned and add it to Tropicos.
