Aechmea ornata is a variable Bromeliad species, appreciated for its ornamental value and its frost-resistance. It is endemic to southern Brazil from Rio de Janeiro State south to Santa Catarina and most specimens will resist unscathed to at least -7 C.

There is a bit of mistery around this variety hoehneana, described in 1955. The flowering axis is thinner and flowers are blue, but this is not too exciting for collectors. The big thing about it is its dwarf growth habit. We do not know if it is for all hoehneas around but our clone has very dwarf, squat rosettes wider than tall. Furthermore their colour is quite attractive, with a mottled pale green colour, often with a pink hue on the tips.
