This is one of my favorite plants, and I think the pictures speak for themselves! However, I’m still going to talk a little bit about this plant.
I couldn’t find much info on this plant, but it definitely has Aechmea recurvata in its blood, and is possibly a cultivar of A. recurvata or a hybrid. It has the typical recurvata shape, inflorescence, and blushing characteristic that many of them do.
Very easy to care for, they take full to part sun, tolerate my cold weather with ease. They flower in early spring and stand out in the garden, despite their small size. An individual plant is around 6 to 8 inches tall, and maybe 4 to 6 inches wide when grown hard.
