Evergreen mounding succulent, the small, 1-2", rosettes forming a low mound up to 3' in diameter. Leaves are bluish green with a few spines on the margins; flowers are yellow-green, appearing in early winter. They prefer bright light - full sun or, in the hottest places, light shade -- and well-drained soil. Though drought tolerant, growth is better with summer water. Frost hardy in upper USDA zone 9. Previously known as Abromeitiella brevifolia. Bromeliaceae

Often listed as Abromeitiellia chlorantha var. minima, this wonderful small-growing, mounding bromeliad is now classed as Deuterocohnia brevifolia var. chlorantha. We find it rather easy to grow with bright light and adequate water during the summer and a winter rest period. The green flowers in early winter are an added bonus.
