Beautiful Bromeliad

Pin It

I'm not very knowledgeable about Bromeliads. I know that there are many, many varieties, for both indoor and outdoor gardening, but I've never grown one. I've just found out that they are in the same family as pineapples. Who knew?
This was flashing it's colors at us while we were taking a walk in Susan's neighborhood this past week and I couldn't resist snapping a photo. More 'hood photos to follow...

Very nice. I've never heard of this before. I like its Chrissmasy colors. Definitely puts me in the mood. ;-)

We have recently been given membership for the National Trust, and I have some photographs of the same plant taken in a garden near us, very striking aren't they.
