This bromeliad has Christmas colours! Dark green leaves and red center (if kept under shade). This is a yet unnamed neo hybrid with glossy green leaves that turn crimson in partial sunlight. A great showy variety for the patio or front yard.
Purplish black in bright light, this large bromeliad spans a meter when mature. Its meter long spike has black bracts bearing off-white flowers, creating vivid contrasts and making it a great accent plant. Prefers semi-shade to dappled bright light; the amount of light influences foliage colour.
A classic cross between the considerably darker, burgundy variety with the dark burgundy-purple floral bract and the brighter, red variety with the red branching bract that could give either colour, or in some cases, a mix of colours. A beautiful specimen, either ways.
Formerly known as Vriesa imperialis, this dark-red giant can span over 1.5 meters in ten years. The tough, leathery leaves tinge a deep red in bright light. The thick, red flower spike can grow 2.5 meters high, producing hundreds of lightly fragrant, white flowers. Prefers bright light and can withstand relatively cool temperatures.
This small, fast growing neo grows about 10cm high and 15cm wide. The leaves are bright green with colourful maroon-purple banding. Easy to grow, it is ideal for hanging baskets or for mounting on trees. Prefers full sun.
This is another much sought after, rare, large Brazilian native. The leaves can grow to 1.5m long when mature, with the lower leaves drooping over and creating an unusual landscaping feature. The thick flower stalk can grow to 1.5 meters tall, branching out into dozens of flower stalks bearing numerous blossoms, and can last several months.
This pretty plant has a medium sized rosette of tall, prickly, greenish-blue leaves and a tall spike bearing deep pink bracts and purple flowers. Prefers partial to full sun, with leaf colours intensifying in bright light.
