Bromeliad Neoregelia Carolinae 'Tricolor'.
The Neoregelia Carolinae 'Tricolor' is one of the most popoular bromeliads with stunning variegation. Narrow shiny lance shaped green leaves are striped with white and rose pink, arranged in 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. As the plant matures, with the onset of flowering time, the whole centre of the plant becomes a stunning intense red colour which lasts for several months. The inflorescense itself is long lasting and a violet to lavender colour but not particularly showy. Mature plants are between 14-16 inches and will produce offsets.
Perfect for bringing some colour to your house, patio, conservatory or greenhouse. Can be grown outside through summer and brought in through winter. Very low maintenance and easy to grow.
