Fascicularia bicolor http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/104711/ , a bromeliad that is hardy enough to be tried in my area. From Chile.

I could be wrong again, but it kind of looks like Neoregelia sp.

Vngarden, I don't think Noregelia species have the razor sharp spines/barbs shown in Singhg's picture.

Thanks growin, vngarden and themoonhowl
Thanks for help. I take it as Fascicularia bicolor, unless a better option emerges. I know bromeliads are a tough group, and my knowledge of this group is rather nil.
