Title: Re: FW: Anthurium sp. 'purple leaves'.
The cross between Anthurium veitchii and A. andreanum is known as Anth. x "Montefontanense" and is not known to have red foliage...  I wish you good fortune in the search for the parents...

Next time you are down this way....  I have a plant the might fit your description...  Would like you to take a look at it....

Dear Friends,
As a follow-up to me querry below concerning the commercially sold Anthurium w/ the red-purple leaves that do not change to green, and which I recently saw in bloom for the first time, a friend informs me that it is called (among other names) 'Red Beauty", and he believes it comes from an Anthurium vetchii X Anthurium andreanum cross.    Come to think of it, the blooms with the pink spathes and short peduncles did resemble closely the blooms I have seen on other plants that came from this cross, but the othres had green leaves.   The next chance I get I will examine the leaf viens, as the crosses I saw had viens that one could recognise as being from the A. vetchii parent.
>>Dear Joe,  Tom and Friends,
I saw for the first time blooms on that 'commercial' var. or sp. of Anthurium that I first saw for sale at K-Mart about 4 years ago, the one w/ cordate leaves that never change color from purple to green,( the color purple of some Anthurium sp. leaves when they first emerge, but 'normally' then change to green)   Do you know the one I`m speaking about??   Well the damn thing has BEAUTIFUL, large cupped, elongate light pink spathes!   I somehow had anticipated an insipid looking bloom perhaps like the hybrid cultivar 'Lazarus' that I have seen, with a thin, purplish/colorless spathe, but no, this plant is spectacular in bloom!    Any idea of its parentage or if it is a species???
