Fascicularia bicolour is a pretty crazy evergreen bromieliad which forms a rosette of spiky leaves. An unusual rarity, this Chilean native provides an extraordinary show of exotic colour during flowering. As the name suggests, Fascicularia bicolor will initially adopt a bright scarlet colour within the centre of the plant before producing small brilliant-metalic-blue flowers - a double whammy of red and blue exotica.
This plant requires pretty much no attention at all and will thrive in a sunny, well-drained position - it will happily live in a container for many years providing the compost is free draining. Excellent on the coast and tolerant of drought and wind. You can expect a spread of at least 40cm x 40cm. Hardy down to around -10 degrees.
There are many micro-propagated varieties of Fascicularia bicolor available however ours are propagated by us and originate from a beautiful specimen on the Isles of Scilly. They are far superior and have broader grey leaves and more intense colour.
Fascicularia bicolor is a must-have in an exotic garden and for the plant enthusiasts and collectors.
Plant in free draining soil in full sun.
