Ananas comosus 'Variegatas'- More commonly called Ivory pineapple or variegated pineapple. This pineapple features long (up to 3’) evergreen leaves that are variegated (green in the middle with light green trim). During the summer, the plant produces a red flower. This plant is primarily grown for ornamental purposes, and its fruit is not very tasty. This pineapple prefers partial to full sun and does not do well in temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be grown both as a houseplant or outside in tropical climates (zones 11 to 12). It can grow to be 2 to 3 feet in height and 2 to 4 feet in width.

Bromeliads belong to the plant family, Bromeliaceae, which encompasses over 2,700 species plus thousands of hybrids. With one exception all are native to the Americas. You'll find them growing from the southern part of the United States throughout the Americas to Chile and Argentina. Spanish moss and ball moss are bromeliads found across a very wide range, but the pineapple is the most familiar bromeliad. In nature many bromeliads grow on trees as epiphytes. Their roots are used mainly for support. While many bromeliads grow on trees, many others grow in the ground, on rocks and on cliff faces. They are remarkably versatile, and form one of the most adaptable plant families in the world. They have a tremendous ability to survive, and can offer infinite variety, challenge, exciting plant forms and color combinations.
