The famed ‘Silver Vase’. Beyond a doubt the most popular Aechmea worldwide. A large and beautiful, wide leaved, silvery open rosette, with a spectacular inflorescence forming a tightly clustered head of pink branches, bracts and blue flowers. Stunning.
This is a bromeliad commonly seen in florist shops, selling for handsome prices! Native to the Atlantic Forest of Eastern Brazil, it is an epiphyte of low to medium altitudes. Over many years this plant has undergone much selective breeding to produce wider leaves, more silvery foliage and larger inflorescences. An easy plant to cultivate in open shade or bright interior locations.
Beautiful and healthy…
Plants came the same as I saw them in Florida! Made it to Boston perfectly
