Bromeliads in the Landscape

This plant is in the same family as the pineapple. Most Bromeliads are just for show. Twenty years ago this type was just seen in collectors gardens, and usually too expensive for normal landscapes. Now Home Depot sells it for $39 down from $125 years ago. The very colorful Bromeliads sold all over the USA are seldom used in the landscape because they are too fragile.
