It is starting to show tiny blue flowers in center. I'd like to enter it in a plant show since it's going to bloom, but have no tag...thanks...

Wish I could help, but have no clue. It isn't like those that I have.

Do you have any other broms?
I just love them.

I have some, but they mostly just care for themselves. I'm not a good brom mom. I have some planted in the garden that I cover during winter, and some that I keep in a hoop house when it gets down to freezing . I just like that they're so carefree...unlike those derned brugmansias that I love...

Yes, the bugs stay away from the Broms. That's one reason why I like the also.
Which ones survive the winter? I always bring mine inside the Ghouse when it reaches 45 degrees.

I'd guess it's one of the hundreds of Neoregelia hybrids.

Thanks, someone actually ID'd it at the show, but I didn't have anything to write it down...and e-mailed her to ask for ID again.
Not a great photo, but it got a blue ribbon anyway, along with the two on either side of it. All three were in bloom.
