Alcantarea imperialis ‘Burle Marx Clone’

In Stock

Yet another form of this popular giant grower. This one is a choice clone, grown from ‘grass offsets’ from a plant out of the Burle Marx private garden in Rio de Janeiro. Has deeper toned, purplish leaves as it matures. Best in partial sun, but can adapt to full sun. An outstanding clone.

In general, Alcantarea imperialis is a giant of the bromeliad world, sometimes reaching over five feet high with leaves over eight inches wide, in full rosettes. Gardens of these giants are still found on bare granite slopes in the mountains near Rio de Janeiro where they grow in full sun. Bright light in cultivation brings out a reddish cast in the foliage. Suitable for landscape in warm locations or makes a spectacular potted specimen.
