Ananas comosus variegatus
The Pygmy Pineapple (Annanas comosus) has been a long-term Bloombox Club favourite and we are now thrilled to introduce its cousin: the Variegated Pineapple (Ananas comosus variegatus).
These ones generally don't have a central ornamental fruit as pronounced as the non-variegated pineapples, but they do have an intriguing pink-green colour.
Surrounding the pink fruit is a flush of variegated green and white foliage. But be warned, each proud frond is marked with little serrated spikes so you don't run your hand down them!
Botanical name: Ananas comosus variegatus
