Canistrum giganteum 'Leopardinum'

Imrpressive tough bromeliad in the genus Wittrockia. This form has a special attractive dark mottling on the leaves. The inflorescence comes out as a very large flower-like structure or red-maroon colours. Not a hybrid, this is probably a local form of Wittrockia gigantea, formerly known as Canistrum giganteum. It is easy to grow, but quite slow.
