About plant names...

Neoregelias are members of the bromeliad family, and are from eastern Brazil. This cultivated variety is not found in the wild. It is a cross between Neoregelia 'Catherine Wilson' and N. carolinae.

Identification: Plants are up to 8″ (20 cm) high × 1½′ (55 cm) around, with thick, shiny leaves emerging from the center of the plant. The leaves have a patchwork of burgundy tints, and form a small watertight center which stores rainwater. Flowers appear in the center, and may be red, pink, purple, or magenta.
