Colourful broms

Favourite plant - that's so hard to pick. My favourite changes day by day. But if I have to pick one -- the neoregelias.
The bromeliads I divided a while back are all colouring up for summer

  1. They are just beautiful, such an ornamental plant. There are a lot in my garden too, the lovely old lady who lived here before us was quite a keen gardener, and left us a lovely established collection of bromeliads, gardenia and snowflake. Not things that I would have chosen to plant at all so it's all the nicer that we have something "out of our ordinary"!

  3. Your bromeliads are gorgeous! I mostly get to admire them when I visit hothouses, your photos are like seeing them in person.

  4. So glad Missy had the time to share her favourite flower with us all! These are so different from what I see in my garden. Is that water pooled in the center of the plants?

  6. I have a few, but many were damaged over winter. I'm a slow learner! Happily though they are coming back now that I have moved and re-potted or replanted them properly.

  7. Your bromeliads look great... I haven't had any in around 30 years, but find myself developing new interest in houseplants in this climate... there was a time when I had hundreds of houseplants, if not a couple thousand... then I decided that I wanted to let God do the watering and totally devoted myself to the outside gardens. interesting how things go in cycles and maybe it's time for a bromeliad again!

  9. I have never really considered bromeliads for the garden. You have some lovely specimens, with surprising colour.

  10. I love them. I bought them and grew them in the ground some years back. They didn't make it. I guess they didn't like clay soil.

  12. Visiting your blog is like taking a tropical vacation. Your garden is phenomenal and I always see and learn about plants I've never seen before!! The bromelaids above only exist here in greenhouses or as house plants in a very warm house. What beautiful plants!! :0)
