Vriesea Splendens

During the peak of the hurricane season in Miami, every year, my bromeliads all go berserk and they flower in all colors and shapes. Among many in my back yard, this is a Flaming Sword bromeliad of origin from the moist forests of southeastern Brazil. It is sensitive to other climatic conditions but is doing beautifully along this fence.

I find this amazing to see those plants outside. Where I come from, they are inside of course. I use to hate those. I still do. A little. But this does not take away the beautiful picture you took of them.

I've never seen one like that before.

It must be so nice to have them bloom like this and have your hard gardening work rewarded ;)
