Bromeliaceae is a large family of herbaceous plants native to the Americas. Just like many orchids, they naturally grow on tree branches or above rocks and cliffs. Bromeliads are highly appreciated because of their incredible colours and their ease of growth in pots.
We offer a fine selection of bromeliads that are never available through garden centres in Europe. Large scale distribution mostly sells green, thin-leaved hybrids. Our shop keeps an ever-increasing offer of the species with the toughest and most colourful leaves, better adapted to hot and cold conditions of outdoor life. All our bromeliads are shipped as bare root “pups”. These are the robust basal suckers produced after blooming. Bromeliads travel amazingly well in the mail and they are also cheap to ship. Our robust pups will often bloom in less than one year.
Ursulaea is a new genus, still uncommon in cultivation. It grows as an Aechmea with a beautiful pink-white fuzzy inflorescence and blue flowers. Leaves are silvery underneath, green if hot and shady and golden-copper in cool sunny weather.
Tubular plant with bright green leaves with black blotches and small spines. Beautiful, long lasting blooms consist of red and yellow upright spikes appearing in spring or summer. Hardy to light freezes, and hot, harsh conditions
Mid-sized plant with yellow flowers. Native to a small area of coastal forest in cooler So.Brazil, it is a tough sun-loving plant that grows well in open and exposed sites. Use in trees or stumps as an epiphyte or on rocks.
Frost-resistant hybrid, developed for non-tropical growers. It is descendant of the frost hardy Aechmea distichantha, crossed with Aechmea phanerophlebia. 'Rambo' builds a swollen monster rosette, of lime-green leaves armed with black spines. The pink inflorescence comes up from the top of the closed rosette.
