Bromeliad Neoregelia sp. Large Bromeliad.
This Bromeliad Neoregelia sp. is absolutely stunning and one of the unusually large bromeliads. Wide shiny purple-maroon coloured leaves are 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. Colour is dependant on how much sun the plant receives, although it will adapt to semi shade but the leaves will turn paler. Small backward facing spines are present along the leaf margins. As yet many specialists have not been able to identify this particular bromeliad species.
Great for exotic gardens, it's bold silhouette making a wonderful architectural centrepiece but it will need to be brought inside through winter.
