It is a spectacular Vriesea from high elevation, with beautiful glossy green leaves, tipped with darker markings. It takes a few years to bloom, but the inflorescence is a beauty, a huge "tower" with pink bracts and yello flowers. This is a hard to find beauty.
It takes frost to a limit of about -7 C and it likes cool conditions.
|Minimum winter temperature||-5 ºC to 5 ºC|
