Bromeliad -Aechmea weilbachii

Bromeliad flowers add a touch of spring to any garden. This unusual Bromeliad was given to me by my sister and flowers with at least two bracts every spring, it has long smooth-edged leaves and prefers a shady spot, mine is growing well in a pot.

  1. I have just been given the same plant and it took me a very long time to find the name. I believe it is very rare, so I am especially pleased to receive it. I intend planting it under my Frangipani tree where it will have filtered light in summer. Mine does not have the brown tufts growing out of the violet buds yet. I imagine these will come later?
