Vriesea splendens

An epiphyte from the Bromeliaceae family, the Vriesea splendens is also known as the flaming sword and it’s easy to see why. Apart from its architectural stature, the vivid colouring of Vriesea splendens is what also catches the eye - patterned foliage with a bright red inflorescence that bursts out of the centre of the rosette.
