This variety 'Rubra' has been around for decades. It is an all-red clone with some light silver banding. Its beautiful dull red colour is unmistakeable. Leaves are narrower than in other cruentas.
Neoregelia cruenta grows in coastal areas of SE Brazil on white sand, often in full sun. Leaves are stiff and thick, with serrated leaf margins. The rosette is very open so the water tank is wide, and the white and purple flowers are visible. It is a stoloniferous species, so pups "walk away" from the mother plant.
We offer a robust 25-40 cm (12-16 ") plant of Neoregelia cruenta var. cruenta. We ship it worldwide.
