Beautiful Billbergias, their shape and flowers are so tropical and exotic.
Fantasia's foliage is green with lots of white and hints of rosé . And the neon pink flower buds are such attention grabbers.
Almost there, the buds are opening. The hummingbirds are drawn to the color and check them out several times a day
But I am not too impressed with the flower spike, kinda wimpy looking. I expected so much more from the full buds. But maybe it is due to the growing location, I have it in full shade.
Of course growing this variety in the shade ensures the beautiful foliage coloration, with more sun the white would not be so pronounced.
