    Whoa, these are all freakin' awesome!

    Is the Abromeitiella brevifolia really a bromeliad? I've never seen any like that.

    Hi Ben,
    Yes -it is a brom and has green flowers - though there is one species with reddish flowers. They are very easy and tolerant and will form big clumps like that given time.

    More info here: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...4423793.html?5

    Best regards

    Chris

    Nice collection! The UK has some great plant growing conditions. It's a wonder that anyone ever left to establish colonies. Unless it was to get Broms, Neps and Sarrs to grow back home. And the rum.
