Product Description

The epitome of “ornamental statement” for the larger dry garden or cactus garden! This slow growing, stunning, terrestrial member of the Bromeliad family forms gorgeous, architectural, compact rosettes (12”-15” tall) of serrated, silvery white “pineapple” leaves. Native of highlands in South America (Chile). In late Winter through early Summer, the knock-your-socks-off deep purple blooms emerge from huge, red pine-cone like clusters atop red, stiff, upright stems to 40” tall. Like all Bromeliads, it is a prolific suckerer and each sucker lasts for years before dying. Perfect companion plant for Aloes & Agaves. Can be grown in large containers & barrels. Average to fairly rich well-drained soil. Said to be hardy to 20° F.
