'Little Harv' is one of Bullis Bromeliads' earliest hybrids, and a landscape plant "par excellence" in South Florida. The handsome leaves are silvery green and form a perfect backdrop for the large, yellow and salmon-pink inflorescence. Despite the name, it will easily get 3' tall (closer to 4' when the bloom spike is erect) and will spread to form large handsome colonies over time. Though listed as a shade plant, 'Little Harv' has some of the best sun tolerance of all the silver Aechmea hybrids, but partial shade is an ideal exposure.
Aechmea is a large genus of mostly epiphytic bromeliads. The plants form broad rosettes of arching leaves with a central "tank" or reservoir for collecting water. Because of their sparse root system, bromeliads demand a well-drained soil. In heavy soil areas, till the planting area and incorporate compost and topsoil prior to planting. Care should be taken to ensure that the central "tank" always has some water in it through overhead irrigation or rainwater. Bromeliads in general dislike heavy fertilization.
