The Golden Plant

This is  Blanchett’s Bromeliad (Aechmea blanchietina).  Had I named it, I would have called it the fire plant.  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.  Blanchett’s Bromeliad, also known as The Golden Plant, is native to Australia.
