Giant Aechmea! The largest growing hardy bromeliad you can grow in the deep south. The light green leaves are heavily armed and outreaching, so plant away from the garden path but in view of a window where on cold winter mornings you can see its tropical flare. A slow growing plant that needs winter protection from cold when winter temps reach the mid teens. Best planted at the base of trees or palms where the effects of root competing limits the use of other plants but benefit this one because of its shade and drought tolerances. In time each rosette will produce a vibrant pink flower spike with bright purple flowers in late spring. Note:Offered here are Bare-root divisions.
