Dutch Botanist by the name of W. DeVriese is responsible for naming this bromeliad genus back in the 1800's. It has over 250 species and hundreds of hybrids. 'Mint Julep' is a variety grown for its large, thick-textured deep green leaves with handsome white spots and speckles. When flowering, it produces an extremely tall, slender flower stalk 3' tall or greater, festooned with dozens of small creamy white flowers emerging from reddish purple buds.
Vriesia 'Mint Julep' needs shade, either full or partial, and will not succeed in full sun locations in the landscape. It enjoys high humidity and regular watering but very well-drained soil.
