Virtually hardy (in the Uk) Bromeliad.
Is there another name besides fascicularia bicolor? I have no idea how to pronounce this!
Fascicularia (Banded, bundled) fas-sik-yoo-LAR-ee-uh [Courtesy of 'Dave's Garden' botanary] I would replace the 'uh' at the end with 'a', but then I am not N. American.
This North American says it larry-uh. Another North American has it growing outdoors in a rockery (Seattle, WA), says there is a problem in cultivation with another, less hardy species usually being grown in its place.
Hi, Ron B,
It grows well in Ireland (F. bicolor) but after -12C of frost we will see how it fares when spring gets going. Several other plants we would regard as 'exotica' have bitten the dust (or snow)
Whoa, that is quite something!
