About Tillandsia ionantha

The Tillandsia ionantha is a petite plant, standing at a height of 6 to 12 inches and spreading out to a width of 4 to 8 inches. Its leaves are a unique gunmetal color, but what's truly remarkable is when they turn a stunning ruby shade. The flowers, on the other hand, are a striking cobalt and amethyst, adding a pop of color to your indoor space.

Despite its name, the 'Blushing Bride' doesn't actually blush. Instead, its leaves change color to a vibrant ruby shade, giving it the appearance of blushing.
