What Houzz contributors are saying:

Popular Types of BromeliadsAechmea. You may have seen Silver vase plant (Aechmea fasciata, zones 10 to 11) before as a houseplant, with its powdery sage leaves and light pink inflorescence, but it's rather boring compared to stunners like the neon-blue and pink-flowered 'Blue Tango' (zones 9b to 11, or the massive orange Aechmea blanchetiana (zones 9b to 11) that are frequently used in tropical landscapes. Some of the cold-hardiest bromeliads are Aechmeas too, including 'Blue Cone' (Aechmea cylindrata 'Blue Cone', zones 8b to 11, shown here), spiky Aechmea distichantha (zones 8b to 11) and matchstick plant (Aechmea gamosepala, zones 8b to 11).
