Deuterocohnia lorentziana


 Deuterocohnia lorentziana - An attractive terrestrial bromeliad that forms dense mounds called pollsters that typically are 1 to 2 feet tall and comprised of 1 inch wide rosettes of triangular stiff leaves that have smooth margins but a sharp terminal spine. The leaves appear to be silvery white because the leaf surfaces are covered with reflective white hairs called trichomes, which gives this plant its full sun tolerance. In late winter to early spring appear the 1 inch long chartreuse colored flowers that, while interesting, are not incredibly showy. Plant in full sun to light shade and water sparingly in containers and very little, if at all, in the ground.

Plants are individually boxed, pot/soil not included
