It really is a party. What kind of bromeliad is this? I might have missed it as I really should be working and not looking at these, but I would love to know.

It is called a Billbergia pyramidalis. They are very easy to grow – the testament of which is the fact that this one is still alive after a particularly savage period of drought here. We have several varieties, and although we have lost some, on the whole they are very hardy. They provide such show for so little gardening effort.

Oh, ‘Bromeliad’… yes that name is more familiar to me. Very partyish indeed 🙂

Amanda, pineapples are from the same family. Are you too far north for pineapple growing? I know there are a lot of farms around the sunshine coast, and we purchased most of our broms from that area.
I’ve only been up your way once, and I really only remember LOTS of beautiful waterfalls and, of course, the reef.

I agree Vimal, I could almost imagine finding it as a sculpture in metal in a gallery.
