These beautiful, colorful, tropical plants are mainly native to the tropical Americas. Some are found in the subtropics and one species grows in Africa. Despite their unusual appearance they are not high maintenance as one might expect and can be successfully grown as houseplants. This page contains photos of these tropical beauties including one with a cute little visitor.

This beautiful crown of thorns sits on my driveway in Nassau Bahamas with potted bromeliad. This picture was taken at about 6.30 A.M., just as the sun rose and the dew had not yet dried.

This flower appears to be growing a mini purple floral garden within its pistil.
