BROMELIADS one of the most drought tolerant plants, so if your looking for a plant that will provide brilliant colour, that thrives in all sort of light from total shade through to full sun, thats also very low maintenance.
The secret is knowing what variety of bromeliad to choose for your garden and where to plant it.
You can easily create a tropical looking garden using colourful bromeliads in Sydney’s climate but it’s important to seek advice from local growers on your selection of bromeliads to maximise your success.
At the coming Spring Show there will be an opportunity to talk with local and interstate growers and there will be a huge variety of bromeliads to chose from such as – Aechmea, Alcantarea, Billbergia, Guzmania, Neoregelia, Nidularium, Tillandsia and Vriesea.
