A really fine cross,named by Grant Groves, who at the time was experimenting with cold hardy Aechmea hybrids.  This plant is not only cold hardy to a light freeze, it can thrive in shade or full sun.  What's more, this is a variegated sport from a solid green parent, most unusual. 

It is a shy bloomer, but when it does bloom, the inflorescence is a nicely branched deep pink panicle.  The leaves are very showy with ivory variegation and it will take on a pinkish to reddish blush depending on the ambient light intensity.
