This was a new species of bromeliads that we spotted recently at Island View Nursery, in Carpinteria.  This lovely specimen with curly leaves comes from the Atlantic Forest" ecoregion of Southeastern Brazil.  It is also known as Grecian Urn. These grow on trees in the forest.  They do have a bloom with lavender-blue flowers.

 

Happy Friday and we wish you all a delightful weekend.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I finally found a place that has a few orchids for sale in Houston!  After seeing these, I am going to have to look for a bromeliad next.

The nursery should be giving you referral fees for all the free marketing you are giving them... or on the other had should be giving you free plants and flowers, Endre

Good morning, Alexandra... great looking plant and one I've not seen until now. Would love to see the lavender-blue flowers (one of my favorite shades).

Good morning Ron and Alexandra Seigel -  That is an usual plant especially if it grows on a tree.

Oh wow, that is exotic looking. I wouldn't necessarily have one, but can sure appreciate its unusual beauty.

Fascinating plants, Alexandra.  And the Grecian Urn name really suits them!
