Aechmea Melodrama
From BCR ... "Mature rosette to 50cms. diameter x 30cms. high. Grey-green leaves marginated cream with purple/inky blue tones on leaf tips, leaf axils and rosette base. Erect, branched-pyramidal spike to 50cms. tall, with mid-pink ovaries and mauve petals which blacken when spent. This variegate is reportedly a reluctant bloomer for many growers. Caudata Group."
