Achmea gamosephala - Bromeliads

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

Achmea gamosephala
This Bromelia will (if grown in full shade with plenty of nutrients), develop dark, glossy, arching green leaves which can reach 70cm in height. In bright light or low nutrient situations the leaves turn a light green to almost gold colour, and usually grow more erect about 40-50cm high. In either case, this plant is a dependable bloomer, with the first flower spikes appearing in late autumn and the last fading of late winter. Once the distinctive blue and pink bottle-brush-shaped spikes have finished flowering, the spike turns dark pink and stays in color until midsummer. The plant holds it pups close to the mother plant, forming an effective ground-cover. One plant will produce 2-5 pups per year, with the clump typically doubling in area each year. It is best for light shade areas where the foliage keeps its best colour and the flowers really stand out. It is relatively hardy, so can be grown outdoors in areas which receive only mild frosts. It is easy to use as an epiphyte or in a pot in the garden.
