Alcantarea Imperialis Rubra backHomenext


The Alcantatea Imperialis Rubra is one of the "Giant" bromeliads because it can grow to 5' across and the thick flower spike can reach 7' given the right conditions. It has hundreds of small white fragrant flowers. It will take years for this to happen, but it's so imposing that it looks grand until then anyway! The wide leaves are a blue-ish green color on top with a silvery cast and the underleaf is a beautiful maroon color. They do well in full sun or partial shade. It originates in Brazil and can handle a wide range of temps. This is a great stand alone specimen or centerpiece. When it's in bloom, it's like the 500 lb gorilla in the room. Can you imagine walking into someone's garden or home that has a plant like the fourth picture and NOT going crazy about it???  Plant? What plant? LOL The sale plants are robust and about 25" across. It is like the one pictured last.
