Top Ten Bromeliads of 2009


I don’t know why Bromeliads get their own list. And yet, the demands of the trade are such that here it is, in all its flaming glory – Top Ten Bromeliads of 2009. On the other hand we don’t actually carry that many species and I don’t photograph most of the florist bromeliads, so we’ll see if we can get to 10. Hey – it’s the best I can do.

10. Vriesea imperialis – some would say this is the greatest of all the terrestrial bromeliads, and so should be number 1.
