Neoregelia 'Orange Crush' is one of the types that develop good foliage color even when not in bloom. The young offsets have green and white variegation but as soon as the leaves start to spread, they develop a red-orange blush on the leaves. When ready to bloom, the center of the plant becomes solid red. Coloration will be best in bright light, with protection from intense sun. Mine get early morning sun, and then dappled shade from mid-day on.
Plants get about 12 inches across and eight inches tall. Like many Neos, they will tolerate a light freeze but need to be protected from frost forming on the leaves. Buy this plant!
