Bromeliad Garden

Layers of color, shapes and textures playing among dappled sunlight and shadows, the bromeliad garden is a popular source of inspiration for photographers and painters. In fact, bromeliads were among the plants that inspired the mission and focus at Selby Gardens along with two other focal plant families – gesneriads and orchids. The bromeliad family, known to scientists as the Bromeliaceae, is a core interest of research and study here through the efforts of the Mulford B. Foster Bromeliad Identification Center.
