Silver Plum Bromeliad Alcantarea Purpurea is a stunning deep purple/red coloured sun loving bromeliad growing to a span of more than 1.5 metres. The flower spike can reach 2.5 metres in height and last for up to 18 months! It is a fantastic feature in any garden style. As with most bromeliads, the leaves are extremely hardy and can handle a fair amount of stress.

Uses: Silver Plum Bromeliad is definitely a feature plant. It can provide a beautiful focus for your garden, a great centre piece with its architectural shape, and can define a space or entrance to any home or garden with one on either side. It can also be planted into a large pot for a higher, more prominent feature.

Planting: Silver Plum Bromeliad requires a full sun position to fully develop the deep red and purple leaves. It needs a free draining soil with good nutrients. It is a low maintenance plant, only requiring water in its cups. Avoid having wet soil around the rootball.
