Quesnelia testudo

Quesnelia testudo is a very cold-hardy bromeliad that is great for landscaping.  Individual plants start to bloom in early winter and large beds of them may show color until late spring. Plants easily tolerate brief periods of 25°F and the foliage shows little damage from frost.

This Quesnelia will grow in full sun to full shade. They look best with morning or afternoon sun, and shade during the middle of the day. Plants grow about 18 inches tall, with solid green leaves that are tipped by a sharp spine.  Long-lasting, cold-hardy, and beautiful!  What more could you ask for?
