Bromeliad- Bromeliaceae Genera

The striking colours and flowers of the Bromeliads provide an exotic touch to the home and garden, bringing a sense of the tropics and sun-kissed climates.

From vibrant pinks to purples, orange and red flowers in contrast to the variant multicoloured greens and textures including bands, stripes, spots, and other features on its foliage, it's no wonder these plants are much loved and welcomed in any space. Bromeliads may look difficult to grow, but this tropical-looking epiphyte is easy to care for, slow growing and long-lasting.
