Commonly referred to as the silver vase plant, the urn plant, or Aechmea fasciata, has silver streaks on the leaves that form a vase. A flower stalk appears in the center during spring with light blue flowers that eventually turn to a dark rose color surrounded by a cluster of pinkish bracts. Part of the Bromeliaceae (bromeliad) family and native to Brazil. Silver urn grows well as a houseplant anywhere and will flourish for years indoors when given essential care.
