Tillandsia Ionantha...aka..Sky Plant
a very colorful bromeliad at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, FL. If you really enjoy Orchids, Bromeliads, Epiphytes, Hibiscus, etc...they have over 20,000 plants/flowers to enjoy on 9.5 acres...it's a plant/flower lovers destination if visiting Sarasota.
One of my favourite forms of this species. While the plant and flowers are on the small side, the flowers have a fantastic vanilla fragrance, nice pink spotting and a good number of flowers. This particular form is from Mt. Banda Banda in Queensland.
