Enjoy long-lasting color all year round.
Unlike annual and perennial flowers that come in and out of bloom throughout the summer, bromeliads never fade, holding their color year-round in frost-free regions and as an indoor treat during the winters up north.
In the landscape, these easy-care beauties come in such a wide variety of shapes and colors, you can literally mix and match different colors and shades together to create a landscape uniquely yours. And, since they pop in and out of the ground so easily, you can change your color scheme or pattern whenever you like.
To celebrate Christmas, drop in bromeliad varieties with red foliage such as Magaly, Fireball, Pimiento, Paula, or Wolf Gang. These brightly colored beauties outperform poinsettias whether you plant them in pots or the landscape. You can use all one variety such as Magaly to create a solid red carpet along your front walk, or mix in a few other red-hued types for variety and interest.
When Easter rolls around, consider turning your garden into a festival of pink and yellow. Some top picks in this color include Cotton Candy, Donna, Franca, Martin, Fancy, or Freddy. Not only do they all sound sweet–they almost look like living Easter baskets!
For the Fourth of July, think about giving your landscape a more patriotic theme by planting varieties bursting with color. It’s like having your own fireworks show at ground level. Good choices for an all-American theme include Donger, Fruity Pebbles, Sassy, Super Fireball, and Treasure Chest.
And don’t forget to give you yard a spooky makeover for Halloween. Select from a number of dark, or almost black varieties to line your front walk to give Trick or Treaters a fright. Some of our spookiest bromeliads include Darth Vader, Moulin Rouge, Diablo Negro, Perez, or Tiger.
