Hokuloa Anthurium Flowers were developed by the University of Hawaii. The university crossed an A. antioquiense with a Marian Seefurth to produce a hybrid. Then they took this hybrid and then crossed again with Tropic Mist. The end result was the Hokuloa Anthurium.
The Hokuloa anthurium flower comes in a gorgeous shade of white. It has a yellow nose that turns white as the flower matures.
Did you know that Hokuloa means morning star in Hawaiian? And of course morning star is a reference to the planet Venus, which is one of the brightest objects in the sky. Venus manages to outshine all of the stars in the sky by reflecting massive amounts of sunlight towards us.
The Hokuloa is almost as brilliant as its namesake. Its flowers are almost resplendent enough to blind you if you don’t wear sunglasses. (Okay, maybe I’m going a little overboard, but it is a beautiful flower.)
