Ah, the Brazilian Red Cloak, as it is known by its common name, is a long time favourite plant of mine.

This whole huge clump was unbelievably beautiful and mesmering to me. At almost every feet apart amongst the Pisonia-like leaves, you could see the inflorescences of red bracts that subtended the smaller white flowers.

What can I say? Heaven is a place on earth when you are greeted by such unparallel beauty.
