Can anyone ID this Brom...

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

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.

Thanks for trying! I think I'll still enter it...

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.

You are right Dave!

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.
