OK I have no idea what this plant is. It could be from Mars for all I know. I go to a garden and take pictures. MY wife and friends read the information and maybe tell me about it but when I am composing I have learned to shut out distractions. This is frequently to the displeasure of anyone that I am with. I think this is some sort of Aloe but whatever it is I find its beauty and coloration unusual.
I have seen yellow Birds of Paradise bloom in many gardens and growing wild in Hawaii. I also thought they only came in yellow and white until I saw this specimen. Photographed at the Selby Gardens in Sarasota Florida during the winter Orchid Show.
