Description Fine Print
 
Fascicularia bicolor is an epiphytic member of the pineapple family that hails from Chile and is likely hardier than the currently suggested zone 8b. It forms a tight rosette of long, narrow, silver foliage. When it comes into bloom the foliage near the centre of the plant turns bright red offering a colourful backdrop to the cluster of sky blue flowers. Plant in a protected situation in sharp drainage at an angle so the rosette can drain or attach to a tree. In colder climates grow in a pot and keep it frost free for winter.
