Bromeliads are absolutely beautiful plants. One of our favorite plants we buy from Lowes.
There are so many varieties.
This particular one is called Aechmea Bromeliad pronounced “eek-mee-uh”.
I tried to capture the pretty tiny lavender and fuchsia flowers. Aechmea gets its name from a Greek word meaning “spear tip”. So placing in with the mighty lion seemed appropriate. A bit exotic.
In one week more flowers blossomed.
This giant air plant, also a species of Bromeliad. I believe it’s called Tillandsia Air Plant pronounced “till-and-see-uh. We first noticed it growing on our Bottle Brush tree in May of 2015. It’s getting so large I’m afraid the weight of it will cause it to just drop off. I think it’s beautiful and amazes me every time I look at it.
Because we love Bromeliads and want to keep them year round, I purchased this silk one approx. 6 years ago. Forgot where but as you can see, it’s still holding up. One place I go on-line for silk tropical stems year round is http://www.Petals.com. click here for the link. For a simple centerpiece the Bromeliad is all that was needed.Glad it’s Spring……If you get a chance check out http://www.Petals.com Great floral stems, arrangements and loads of inspiration.
