That was a April Fools photo.
Here is the real look of the Neoregelia 'Picasso'.

Too witty by half.
Did anyone catch the NPR April Fools joke about the supposed Broadway Musical based on the life of Alan Greenspan?

Strange but the near-by Amaryllis wants to be in on the color act.

That looks like Basket Plant (Callisia fragrans)

They have wonderfully fragrant blooms!

Thanks for info and pictures of the basket plant. The info says it is an herb. So it's not a bromeliad?

PS, at store this am, I was smiling when I saw all the plants jumping in basket. 2 pots of hyacinth were in a cart before the lady was in store. A large fern occupied prime space in another buggy. Since it was raining I didn't go to garden center. Enjoyed watching all the jumping plants!

Hiyall, No not a bromeliad... I have a basket plant, I actually found it at a bromeliad plant sale, it has a lot of medicinal benefits if I remember right. Be careful of those jumping plants when you shop...they're always looking for a ride in the shopping carts, just have to pass that register to get out of the store. Whistling

Gina, safe travels, hope you find some goodies. pouring rain here this morning.

I have some new blooms coming up....
