Of course when you are in South Florida, it would be hard to resist a visit to Michael's Bromeliads.
Love those colourful Orthophytum (or xNeophytum ?), Thanks Jon (^_^)
I always look forward to my trips to Michael's. Always something new
Thanks for the photos. I'm due for a trip back there again. Like HDD says, always new things to find. It seems to get better every year.
Hey, I see a familiar face in there..... ;-)
Is the last photo O. albopictum or some other Ortho?
Whats that red Billbergia? Those're nice! Hell, everything is nice!
What Is the name of the brom in the seventh picture?
marleneann, it looks a lot like Vr. 'Ewalu to me, but it might possibly be its sibling, 'Ehiku. The amount of foliage color in this group can vary a lot with the season and the growing conditions.
Here is a link that might be useful: Color by numbers
thanks form the picks jhans4 there great but it isnt of any use to me dont think that customs would appritiate me trying to bring a half a dozzan plants back here oh well.
kerry or any one from australia is there any thing like that here if not we sould get together and make one, hmm that would be fun having hundreds, oops i mean thousands of broms out the back
I will be honest with you, Michael rattled off the names of all the Vrieseas, but all that I remember is that they were Hawaiian. So Kudos to Lisa. I actually purchased a few of the Bilbergias pictured but you can probabbly guess thet the Vrieseas were not for sale. Here are a few more pics:
Jeez, my eyes are shot now! Too much color!!!
I always enjoy looking at pictures from Michael's nursery. Thanks for sharing!
Any idea what is this Billbergia
and this Neoregelia?
There are two Don Beadle hybrids in the first photo. The pinker one on the right is Hallelujah x kuhlmanii, the one on the left is vittata x Caramba. The Neo. is Red Plate (cultivar of Sheer Joy).
Is that crossed with the real kuhlmanii or the one we know as brasiliense as per Auntie M's article?
Thats probaly a question for Mr Beadle himself :)
Sorry for the long delay but hdd is right on with the billbergias. I checked my tags. The vitata x Caramba gets huge by the way. The neo, if my memory serves me right is one of Michael's hybrids he plans to name.
