Bromeliads, assorted

Species: Neoregelia, Aechmea, Bilbergia.

Had to bring some bromeliads from Florida to Oregon, & many died from overwatering in the cold back porch last winter. They have summered outside & bloomed. The purple one on left is a Neoregelia with lavender stars in the center, sometimes called Nail Polish bromeliad. Center is a cross between a Neoregelia and an Aechmae. Right is a Bilbergia, tall vase form with polka dot leaves as it ages. Back row is another Bilbergia, then Magic Paintbox or some such which is used primarily to hybridize better color, and a Variegated Neoregelia.
