I've noticed two of my Alc. glaziouana starting to change over the last couple of months. They are coming into flower, and as they open up the centre really looks like it is glowing, making them a spectacular eye catching feature in the garden.
I had an Alc. glaziouana flower last season, but I didn't notice this feature. That plant was growing in full sun, where as these are growing in the shade given by three Euterpe edulis palms...so may be a semi shaded location is best for these Alc's  Smiley

Here are some pic's.

Andrew that inflorescence is stunning and certainly something I never saw on my flowering glaziouana either being in full sun. I'll have to try a shaded spot too. Thx for sharing.

The Alc. glaziouana are now a real feature, flowers should be out any day now.

Hi Andrew

This is what we call A. glaziouana Pink Bracts. It came to me via the NZ seed bank as something else. Grown in all day full sun. I'll post some other things. How do you post the larger images ?.

cheers Bruce

Hi Pete, those palms are Euterpe edulis. Something like C. plumosa would be better, as the E. edulis do not like the cold, so only seem to look happy towards the end of summer.

I like the Alc. glaziouana Pink Bracts Bruce...do any kiwi's know if this one is growing here?

Happy New Year!

Cheers, Andrew.

Thank you Bruce for the images and cultural tip as I am pretty sure you have IDed a handsome plant I bought on the weekend labelled - extensa type pink bracts - which I guessed was wrong.

Hope that you are getting some rain,

John
