OH! Maureen thank you so much for sharing its name. I didn’t know!! A friend gave me an enormous one to split and they bloomed like crazy. I guess they like it sitting by the hot water heater!

So happy I could name it for you! I recently went to a garden expo and was blown away: not only by the gorgeous flower bracts, but also by the extravagant prices charged for one pup.
Beautiful to see green and pink this time of year. 🙂
This green and pink is one of my favorite color combinations. I have a set of Tiffin wine glasses with pink bowls and green stems. They called it “watermelon glass.” I had no idea bromeliads could do this. The bloom is beautiful.
I love the colors and the shape of the blooms. What a nice present.
Gorgeous capture. Like everyone else I love the combination of green and pink.
Just as you always do, you manage to find beauty irrespective of the season. Early Spring brings the brightest colors and gives hope of more life to come. Thank you!
Very beautiful colors on this winters day.
I love this one! I am going to draw it!
Beautiful and interesting..! Great shot.!
My Mom used to raise Bromiliads in Florida….they are lovely.
magical and full of mystery…stunning plant…what a treasure! 😊
Ooh, pink and green – delightful!
Extraorinary design and colors–what a Master Gardener the earth has!
“Queen’s Tears”: Well I don’t think she is crying, unless from embarrassment by having to stay awhile next to the water heater.
just what we need at this time of year. Both of my phalaenopsis orchids are breaking out into bloom as well.
Very beautiful flower. 🙂
