Air plant Overview

This is a dense rosette of grass-like, arching leaves, which are usually deep green, but often reddish brown when young. In late spring to mid autumn, spectacular, paddle-shaped flowerheads will rise on tall stems from among the foliage. They consist of overlapping pink or red bracts with deep violet-blue flowers.
