So, this one is in my dad's yard, and someone gave it to him, so he has no clue what it is. This amazing flower caught my attention, and I am sure someone out there has this one and can identify it for us! Thank you!

Nice, I believe it might be Aechmea 'Fantasia', rarely seen, I see it for sale once in awhile online but usually carries a high price, very nice gift from a friend.

Fantasia is the perfect name for that Aechmea because those blooms are truly fantastic! Lovey dubby
