Description

1x Billbergia ‘Santa Barbara’ plant, growing in a 7cm pot.

This attractive Billbergia is well worth trying – it has proven to be hardy down to around -4 or -5, providing that it has some overhead cover in the form of other foliage or open sided shelter. Certainly, it is very easy to overwinter in a cold greenhouse or cold frame, and I suspect that it might take a few degrees of further cold under glass.

Making rosettes of stiff variegated leaves, larger plants will flower readily when grown in bright light. The pendulous flowers are as bright purple / pink and yellow. This is a lovely plant for the garden, making an unusual addition to a tropical themed border.

Billbergia ‘Santa Barbara’ is a hybrid between Billbergia nutans and Billbergia distachia, although it is occasionally seen labelled as Billbergia nutans ‘variegata’.
