Taiwan’s flower growers produce top quality anthurium. Each year, Taiwan exports over 10 million of the flowers, and anthurium rank second on the country’s cut flower export list. The Japanese especially love the flower, making Taiwan the top source of imports of anthurium to Japan for many years.
Anthurium has been grown in Taiwan for over 30 years. Most of the varieties are imported from the Netherlands and Hawaii originally. Taiwan has also developed more than 100 species of anthuriums.
