Neoregelia ampullacea 'Tigrina'






Neoregelia ampullacea
Family: Bromeliaceae •
Genus: Neoregelia •
Species: ampullacea (E.Morren) L.B.Sm. •
Country of Origin: Tropical America •


One of my smaller bromeliads. I've divided this many times so it's all over the yard in a variety of conditions. I found this on a tree growing on a lot that was being demolished (I'm the savior of thrown away plants), sure glad I saved it! It has interesting little flowers that bloom frequently.

Love the combination of burgundy and green and the tiny little flowers really add some pizazz!
