Description for Ananas bracteatus striatus nanus

Plant height: 3 - 6 inches
Plant spread:

The cultivar Tricolor (also known as Striatus ) has rosettes of erect, sword-shaped, olive-green leaves with creamy margins and red spines.

When mature (about 18 months after propagation), the central rosette gives rise to a tall stout stem bearing an oval cluster of lavender flowers with large prickly red bracts. A plume of stiff leaves tops the cluster. Pulpy greenish-brown fruit-lets follow the blooms, merging to form a succulent, edible cone-shaped fruit that is somewhat smaller than a commercial pineapple.
