Again, at the Huntington Gardens and snapped a picture of this in the greenhouse there. So I’m assuming it is not native to the Southwest. The red appears to be leaves as the dark centers might be spent flowers. Dunno

    Laura I think you’ve done it again. Asked a friend here too, and that seems to be the all around verdict. Quesnelia testudo or arvensis Whoo hoo! I didn’t realize I would put together a book of my artsy flora pics. Now I know better and get the names of what I shoot prior. I”m pretty good about that, but some times there’s no “label” or anyone around to ask, and other times it’s a quick shot I barely remember taking 🙂

    Not able to see its leaves. I am speculating only, maybe a type of bromeliads (Bromeliaceae)? If this is a bromeliad, it looks similar to the some thing in the Quesnelia genus. Sorry, I do not know the exact ID this is. But check out species: Quesnelia quesneliana, Quesnelia testudo and cultivar “Q. ‘Farro’. You could also try a local Bromeliad chapter’s for further assistance.

    It reminds me a lot of turmeric flowers, but couldn’t find a good match. Maybe Google will be nicer to you.
