I am posting foliages today! You might already be saturated with flowers, especially my hedges, Vanda orchids, Cattleya orchids and unusual orchid species. So here are the leaves...Bromeliads.
The Bromeliad Family is composed of several genera, including the moss, Tillandsia and the pineapple, Ananas. Color of the leaves are so varied that gives spectacular designs, which make them very good accents in the garden. The flowers are also colorful that vary greatly from the colors of the leaves.
Since most of the bromeliads originated from the dense forests in Latin America, they need to be moist most of the time. They are normally seen with water at the shoot apex to keep them moist. Maybe it is designed like that to really keep more water even if the environment is already dry.
I am just showing a little sample here because i still cannot make collages to accomodate more species. How i wish i can learn fast as Jacqui already put in her blog tutorials. I am sorry i still cannot just sit and learn the art of making collages.
