Vriesea splendens

Bromeliad Vriesea splendens at Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Gardens

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Monthly Color Challenge: Burnt orange or blood orange.’ See more responses here.

Vriesea splendens is a bromeliad with long green leaves strongly marked with dark brown bands. But the show stopper here is the sword-like red-orange inflorescence which can be 2 feet long.

Also posted in response to Becky’s October Squares challenge theme of ‘Past Squares – Flowers.’ See more responses here.
