This is one of the best large bromeliads, reaching intense orange-yellow colour in full sun.

Aechmea blanchetiana is native to the Atlantic coast of Brazil, where it grows both terrestrially, in coastal sand, or epiphytically, on the branches of tall forest trees.

It is a clumping species, with large rosettes of wide and glossy leaves, producing a spectacular floral display which lasts for months.

The heavily branched inflorescence appears in July and grows to 1,7 m (5 ft) tall, in red and yellow and lasts until December. It loves hot, sunny coastal conditions but it can take light frost. It is hardy to frost of about -1 C (30 F).
