Portea is a small group of plants. It currently includes just nine Species. The plants are natives of the eastern coast of Brazil where they tend to be medium to large plants. They thrive in strong light. The foliage of this Species is a strong copper color and is quite attractive although heavily protected by sharp spines. The branches of the Inflorescence are somewhat lengthy. This characteristic makes the bloom even more stunning. The plant produces a tall bloom of yellow flowers followed by dark purple berries.
