image 66(2)2.jpg is missing! The Search for Irish Bromeliads
    Jay Thurrott
Ireland is not a country where you would ordinarily expect to find many bromeliads. When I recently told friends that Calandra and I would be travelling to Ireland and they asked why?, my response was 'to look for Irish bromeliads!' I wasn't being serious about it of course and certainly didn't expect to see any tropical plants during our visit, much less any bromeliads, but it wasn't long after we arrived in Dublin before we spotted our first bromeliads. A street corner vendor offering cut flowers and potted plants for sale included a tray of very healthy looking, yellow blooming guzmanias (see photo above) in his wares - our first 'sighting', although not particularly remarkable.

INDEX to all articles.
