Lava Flow Pineapple plants grow striking, bright red leaves that form stiff, upright fountains of foliage. The plants like full sun, quickly draining soil, and they grow adorable, red, lemon-sized, ornamental, pineapples. While the fruit is edible, the taste is described as more acidic than larger pineapples. But the tropical look of intrigue created by a row of fire-red plants holding up their tiny red pineapples more than makes up for any edible shortcoming. Lava Flow Pineapples can be grown in the ground within USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 to 11, and in containers in Zones 4 to 11.
Potted Lava Flow Pineapple Plants, with their red leaves and cute little red fruits, add a sophisticated touch of tropical style to any patio or sunny deck. The Lava Flow Pineapple Plants can also be grown indoors in a sunny window and admired all year long. Add a bed of Lava Flow Pineapple Plants to your edible landscape for color, decoration, and an exotic touch that will thrill everyone who sees the red plants and their baby pineapples.
