Neoregelia 'Exotica Sassy Red'

Neo. 'Exotica Sassy Red' came from a line of neo. carolinae seed that I imported from Brazil. The beauty of this selection is its' versatility. This photo was of a group grown in quite heavy shade, yet the pups are still coming up with good colour right from day one. I have also grown these in full sun, where the rich red colouring becomes even stronger.

At flowering, the centre turns rich crimson, which lasts for months. Grows to 20cm high x 45cm wide. Can take slight frosts
