Bromeliads

I was walking along a footpath near my home and saw these stunning bromeliads.
Yes, of course, I knew that pineapples are part of the bromeliad family. Somehow though I had not thought about bromeliad fruit.


These fruits are bright red. There are about seven more little fruit growing - in the bunchy bits.


The plants are about one metre high and are growing at the front of a block of apartments. Partial shade, plenty of water.
The dark green leaves at the front are spider lilies.
