Matchstick Flower

Its very interesting to see different flowers and plants  in various places across the country.

I found this unique flower, popularly called  matchstick flower, when I visited Ratan Tata Holiday Home for Officers at Ooty last year.

Here is picture of the same.

The scientific name is Aechmea gamosepala and it is a Bromeliad.
