Hi everyone, came across this the other day poking it's head up out of the overgrown (neglected) garden and this morning I noticed it flowering.
Aechmea ornata nationalis variegata
Wow! what a bloom. I have that plant but never had it bloom. I will be looking at it closer now.
How could you let an attractive plant like that get lost in the garden? If you don't like it, just send it my way and I'll give it a good home, and I promise I won't lose it in the garden either.
All the best, Nev.
Bloomin' lovely Richard, and to think I have one of its pups in my garden, not flowering but doing very well. I hope the bloom stays for about 6 weeks - when we get back to your place - can't wait!
Watch out Bellbrook it's the Mad brommers party weekend!
(Neat frog also!)
That is a good looking plant, it is nice to stumble on a forgotten brom that is looking good.
It took awhile..... but I found the frog.
You guys love to rattle us Newbees. lol
Awesome plant, too!
