Why do the most beautiful things in the garden also have a dark side?
I’m talking about Quesnelia testudo… Also called Turtlehead bromeliad,or Winter Torch.
A semi-cold hardy bromeliad.It can take temperatures down to 25*F,for a few hours.Most gardens in Florida have them,even though they are native to South America.
They tend to grow into large clumps,one on top of the other. This is the time of year for them to bloom.The inflo is almost fluorescent.
And enjoy them from a distance….
