Vriesea Red Chestnut

Vriesea fosteriana 'Red Chestnut'

Regular price £17.00 £0.00

Keen plant parents might spot that this is a Bromeliad because of the concentration of foliage around a central bud or hollow, but it's the Red Chestnut's foliage, and not its short-lived flower that makes it such an appealing plant. The Chestnut's fronds are a deep green initially, then as the it matures, they deepen into a rich maroon colour. Each frond is marked by creamy white lines, which are textured rather than clean-cut. 

The Vriesea genus can be found across Central America and the Caribbean. It was first documented by Dutch botanist and explorer Willem Hendrik de Vriese, after whom the genus is named.
