Cultivar Origin:

Early 1990's plant accession was from Jerry Horne at a Fairchild Gardens plant show.
Note: Although the leaf is not round-shaped, the Originator has considered if this plant might be a sport derived from similarly small-sized Anthuriums that are collectively referred to as dorayaki.

Name Origin:

The name is honoring a nurseryman grower and longtime friend's daughter, 'Brielle'.

Growth Habit:

(Pollination challenges)

Leaf Blade:

Leaf front: Medium-dark green with silver-frosted contrasting vein markings.
Leaf reverse: Medium green without contrasting veins.
New emergent leaf is green.

Bloom and Fruit:

Petiole is pale green and spadix is yellow.

Distinguishing Characteristics:

The leaf color/shape and vein patterns resembles Anthurium crystallinum.... but with a distinct form and growth tendency:
1) The form is smaller than Anthurium crystallinum featuring leafs that only attain a maximum size of 10" x 12";
2) It is a (relatively) free-suckering plant that produces offsets faster than Anthurium crystallinum to allow its distinctive use as an understory landscape plant.
