The Bromlaid family produces some spectacular unusual flowering epiphytic plants. This one I think is one of the best. After the pink flower head is produced the individual purple flowers emerge over time. It cannot cope with frost but can survive in an unheated greenhouse. It likes some shade as full sun may scorch the leaves. In summer and autumn it survives well outside.
