Bromeliad Aechmea Blanchetiana 'Orange'. 

The Bromeliad Aechmea Blanchetiana 'Orange' is a stunning and one of the unusually large bromeliads. Wide shiny pale green to orange coloured leaves are arranged arching rosettes to form a well in the centre into which water is collected and absorbed through modified cells at the base of the them. Colour is dependant on how much sun the plant receives, it will adapt to semi shade but the leaves will turn greener. Small backward facing spines are present along the leaf margins. In Springtime a spectacular heavily branched flower stalk emerges from the centre rosette up to 5ft tall with small red and yellow flowers. A clumping variety it can produce several pups. 

Great for exotic gardens, it's bold silhouette making a wonderful architectural centrepiece. Perfect for coastal gardens as it an tolerate some salt in coastal conditions as well as urban and rock gardens. Very low maintenance.
