Thanks for posting the pictures. I was there a few years ago but didn't bother to take any good pictures.

I have to say that your mirabilis doesn't look right to me.

Well, the P mirabilis doesn't match the flower shown on FCBS, so it could be mislabelled, or I might not have recorded correctly.  Also, many of them are huge now, and the correct label may be buried, and they may have grown into another label.  Here is the plant next to the P mirabilis label.

Definitely not P. mirabilis.  Can't put my finger on a better name though.

Hi

I have been taking lots of pics at HBG of Bromeliads, mainly Puya and Hechtia.  Lots in bloom.  Some posted here for those interested. 
As to unknown above, still trying to figure out.

Oooh Yeah P alpestris is stunning. That could be a center fold!

All the Puya and Pitcarnias are growing on me! ....Big Time!
