This is Â Blanchett’s Bromeliad (Aechmea blanchietina). Â Had I named it, I would have called it the fire plant. Â Don’t those colors remind you of fire?
I also came across this beauty in Foster’s Botanical Garden. The garden is a 160 acre preserve of beautiful, rare and endangered plants from tropical regions around the word. Â Blanchett’s Bromeliad, also known as The Golden Plant, is native to Australia.
