    Billbergia 'Hallelujah' ('Domingos Martins' x 'Ed McWilliams') is a bromeliad known for colorful foliage. Although the red, white, and blue blooms are showy enough, it's the stunning blends of red, pink, purple, and white on the leaves that gets everyone's attention. Reaching about a foot tall, it develops best color in bright light conditions over time. In other words, it likes filtered sun for part of the day. Flowering can happen at almost any time during the year, and like most Billbergias, the inflorescence fades within days. Very pretty when the sun shines through the leaves.
