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.
9.Tillandsia stricta “Stiff Gray”
8. Neoregelia “Sarah Head”
7. Cryptanthus bivittatus
6. Dyckia platyphylla
5. Neoregelia “Rubra”
4. Cryptanthus “Black Mystic”
3. Puya berteroniana
2. Tillandsia bulbosa
And coming soon to a theater near you, it’s the number 1 hit terrestrial bromeliad of the year…
1. Billbergia nutans – it’s the Queen’s Tears.
