Portea Ted Tevens

Portea is a small group of plants. According to the Bromeliad Binomial it currently includes just nine species. The plants are natives of the eastern coast of Brazil where they tend to be medium to large plants. They thrive in strong light. The foliage of this genus is often quite attractive although heavily protected by sharp spines. The branches of the inflorescence are somewhat lengthy. This characteristic makes the bloom even more stunning. The plant produces a tall bloom of lavender flowers followed by dark purple berries. Although the leaves are frost sensitive, the plants themselves usually survive cold temperatures and produce blooms in the late spring
