Aechmea Bromeliads   From http://www.bromeliads.info/aechmea-starter-bromeliad/ "Aechmea gets its name from a Greek word meaning 'spear tip'."

On a recent visit to the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Coral Gables, Florida, one of the many tropical plants I photographed was the Blue Tango cultivator of and Aechmea Bromeliad.
