    This aechmea fasciata "Primera" is flowering well. It was the last to flower. The dead looking thing behind it is one of last year's bracts. It is ready for removal when I can reach it. :lol:

    The third aechmea fasciata "Primera" bract now has quite a few flowers. This image was taken 12 days after the one above.

    Same aechmea fasciata "Primera" bract from a different angle. One of its flowers seems to be open slightly. First time I have noticed this happening.

    The two aechmea fasciata "Primera" bracts growing in the same pot have ceased flowering. That has taken a month after the bract on the left first started flowering.

    The aechmea fasciata "Primera" have long since finished flowering & the bracts seem to become a brighter fluoro pink.

    It is hard to see the aechmea fasciata "Primera" bracts amongst the wilderness of other plants on our small front patio.

    This aechmea fasciata "Primera" bract is on its last legs but it was the first to appear & the last of the three for this year to die off. It has lasted over 11 months which is a wonderfully long-lasting display.

    This was the last aechmea fasciata "Primera" bract to appear & the first to die off. They become a sad sight when they are finished.

    It sure is, Dawn. These bracts usually last about 9 months but this one has lasted much longer.  It is such a lovely splash of colour. :bravo:
