Bromeliad or Ginger?


That is the question...
There were no leaves so it's not easy to identify.
I hope somebody can ID this flower.


Isn't that wonderful?  That feeling of not knowing too much about something...incomplete information, endless possibilities.  When you don't know much about something, it's the most exciting sensation.   ~ Erol Ozan

That is absolutely exquisite. It may be a bromeliad hybrid of some sort, I don't know but have never seen one like it. It is stunning!

Hmn, haven't seen anything like this yet in my town. Got to scout from flowers and plant sellers in Manila hehe. Ganda kasi eh. My mother will be happy to have one in her garden ;-)

It does look like a Bromeliad but I've never seen an orange one before. It's gorgeous.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Either way it's gorgeous!

beautiful captures...lovely!

The width of the petals puts me in the mind of bromeliad. They are very pretty and a lovely orange shade.

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful!
A Bromeliad would be my guess to but I'm never seen one quite like that.

Great shots of the bromeliads.

My guess would be a bromeliad too but I've not seen one quite like this before. Close examination of the "petals" (looks like little bees digging for nectar on the lower petals) is what kind of throws me.

It is lovely!

Same with others, Bromeliad is also my guess but it's my first time to see an orange one.

I want to say Bromeliad too but I really don't know enough about these lovely flowers to be sure. It's gorgeous and thank you for once again sharing with Today's Flowers :)
