Cultivar Origin:

A.andraeanum cv ‘Dakota’ was doubled into tetraploid with colchicine, and then crossed with Arizona (pollen parent). A single plant was selected from the F1 offspring for asexual reproduction, named ‘Xia Yan’.

Name Origin:

‘Xia Yan’ means a raging fire in summer in Chinese. Because its spathe color is light red and stable, it does not fade seriously even in the high temperature environment in summer.

Growth Habit:

Unclimbing. It is very strong and grows rapidly, and has high tolerance to temperature stress.

Leaf Blade:

The leaves are dark green, medium ovate, with wavy margin, 24.5 cm long and 13.4 cm wide on average.

Bloom and Fruit:

Pedicel erect, average length 33.1 cm, diameter 4.3mm.
The spathe is red, flat, medium size and slightly higher than the leaves.
The inflorescence is erect, short and thick, with an average length of 5.0 cm and a middle diameter of 8.0 mm. Not unfruitful.

Distinguishing Characteristics:

‘Xia Yan’ has a large number of blossoms throughout the year, and the spathe is bright red. As a triploid Anthurium variety, it has fast growth speed, dark green leaf color and strong resistance to stresses. It is a superb medium-sized potted cultivar.
