My friend Deanne began collecting Bromiliads a few years ago, and I can tell you she does not do things halfway. When I visited her splendid New Hampshire garden in August it was pretty clear that she has a gentle addiction going . Her artistic sensibilities inform the design of her gardens: color palettes are just right, and flow seamlessly from one area to another. My frankly undisciplined approach to plant shopping never seems to yield this type of cohesive result. Deanne has incorporated her Bromilaids into her borders and container groupings so that the color echoes shine..and here is my disclaimer-as I strolled around Deannes garden with my camera I never wrote down a single name--this is an anonymous Bromiliad post. Visit Deannes blog and you will most certainly get a better education.
All of my photos of this one are out of focus, but I had to include it here anyway ..is this not outrageous ?
