It’s a holiday long weekend here in British Columbia, so only a selection of links about this pineapple relative today! The genus Guzmania via Wikipedia gives a brief overview of this group of tropical plants. For more photographs, the Florida Council of Bromeliad Societies has a photo database. Lastly, the Mount Holyoke College Botanic Garden has an excellent page showing some of the diversity within the Bromeliaceae.
