Blooming Tillandsia Purple Flowers from an air plant

Some Air Plants not only are beautiful to look at, but also release an intoxicating fragrance when in bloom. The yellow flowers of the Tillandsia Crocta and the Tillandsia Duratii are two of our favorites.

The delicate yellow flowers of the Tillandsia Crocta have one of the sweetest fragrances in all the bromeliad world. And the grape-scented Tillandsia Duratii has pretty violet-colored flowers that emit an amazing Concord grape odor for up to a month.

There are only about 30 of the 500 varieties of Air Plants that are fragrant. If you would like to purchase one of these, please visit our Air Plant store to see our current inventory. http://www.plantstr.net/collections/air-plants
