Aechmea pineliana var. minuta


Aechmea pineliana var. minuta (Aechmea pineliana var. minuta)

I wasn't sure when I got this what it would do when it flowered. It turns out that little yellow flowers open in a ring that goes from the bottom to the top. The brown section at the bottom are flowers that have already flowered and died.

Isn't that fantastic? I love unusual flowers.

I had originally wanted to get several bromeliads for my woods, but with the drought we had last year, I am keeping them close to home in the shade. This one needs to be divided, but in a location I can provide summer water.

It's lovely nice to see a red stem too.
