What's Blooming in the Gardens

In 1998, Guzmania darienensis was first scientifically described in the Gardens' journal Selbyana. Until recently this species was known only from a single dried herbarium specimen. Now a plant of this colorful species has been acquired and has flowered in the research collections at the Gardens. It has been on display for several weeks in the Tropical Display Greenhouse, where it received several covetous glances from bromeliad lovers. Selby Gardens is unique and well known for its scientific study, conservation efforts and its spectacular display of Bromeliads every day of the week.
