This week's edition of Growing on the High Plains features a regional bird of paradise that's both easy to maintain and brilliant when in bloom: the bromeliad. With minor maintenance, this sturdy plant will continue to grow, gracing your garden with its glory. So it's a lot like public radio! Please help HPPR continue to "pretty up" your days on the High Plains. Donate today during our Fall Membership Drive.
These luscious plants aren't shy when they show their true colors, and they provide a daily delight for those in their line of sight. Perhaps the pineapple is the most familiar bromeliad, bearing sweet fruit amongst the unfurled feathers of foliage.
