  Re: [Aroid-l] blue anthuriums
From: Deni Bown <denibown at googlemail.com> on 2011.11.18 at 18:39:21(22316)
True, true blue is rare. Gentians are the standard "true blue" in flowers
but there are more genuinely true blue flowers i.e. without any pink/purple
pigments in the flora of Western Australia than any place else. Roadsides
are lined with startling blue *Leschenaultia biloba, *which are as blue as
any gentian, and there are ice blue orchids such as *Thelymitra deformis * and
*Caladenia crinata *. Why is the next question? Western Australia has a
high degree of endemism in both plants and animals so should we be looking
at pollinators?
