Hi I have this plant in my backyard that I can't find any info on. About to weeks ago the middle started turning vibrant red. I think it's beautiful I just want to know how to care for it best. Any info is appreciated.

It must be some kind of bromeliad but I couldn't tell you which one.

I can't tell you which bromeliad it is, but that red sign is a sign it's going to bloom for you soon. Keep a lookout down the centers of the vases, and post a pic for us when it blooms. That may be the way someone can ID it. I see a pup there too!
Yes, pretty Bromeliad but so many of them look alike to me that I have no idea which it might be. My first thought was possibly a variety off Dyckia. A couple of photos from our database for comparison:
