The blushing bromeliad (Neoregelia carolinae) is part of a large genus of bromeliads and has an interesting way of turning red at it’s center when it’s about to flower, which is where the common name (blushing) is derived from.
The flowers are nothing to shout home about – it’s the foliage and the center turning red that’s the real attraction.
