Hi Aroideana, thats a beautiful flower.  Are your Pitcairnia in full sun??? and what about the ones in town??? I think I could make these really work here in the full sun, they are so beautiful and another species of Broms to add to my collection.  Are you guys ok up with all the flooding??? 

Thank you for posting these beautiful pictures, take care.

Yes this one is planted in the ground in pretty much full sun .
No overhead protection but shaded by nearby large trees for part of the day . Can see it out the front door now shaded by the large fig tree across the driveway . Potted plants need large tubs esp. if a clump . Other spp. I have are mostly in 200 or 250mm pots .

This is really a beautiful flower but I must admit that I have never seen it before. A few weeks ago I ordered flowers online and they looked similar but I cannot remember the name of them. Maybe I can also plant Pitcairnia in my garden. Maybe I will plant them in spring. Are they perennial?
