Cryptanthus Bromelioides Var. Tricolor
Cryptanthus Bromelioides var. Tricolor with varigated wavy-edged foliage that resembles an ackward starfish with rosy center, Tricolor stripe star adds visual texture to the tropical dappled shade garden. Grow Tricolor Stripe star in a well-draining moist soil that is friable with lots of organic matter; sandy ground is best. Place in a partially shaded spot, although some sun is tolerated in mornings and evenings and in more humid elevations. Too much shade diminishes the foliage striping.
