Bromiliad - Achmea fasciata

Fifty years ago this Bromiliad was one of the few that had an eye catching flower stem. Florists and upscale nurseries sold these at very high prices. Now we have a great number of Bromilliad hybrids that are real eye catchers, and they are no longer expensive. This one is growing under our Jaboticaba tree.
