This bright and beautiful medium sized neo grows about 40cm across at maturity. It has pretty red and green leaves, the depth of colour developing best in bright sunlight. Highly versatile, it can be grown in the soil, in pots and epiphytically to trees.
A dramatic plant which blooms yellow flowers with a hint of red. This Mexican native is a natural for the desert garden or the modern architectural landscape. The symmetrical, nearly stem less rosette, smaller size, fine texture, and resistance to pests make this a first class landscape plant. It thrives in full sun, even in low desert, but will do equally well in shade. Adequate water ensures a dense symmetrical form and optimal colour. Whether in modernistic or naturalistic landscapes, few plants rival its uniformity of size and widespread adaptability.
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.
