A close-up image of a flower from Bartram's Airplant. This photograph was made in Haw Creek Preserve State Park.
Tillandsia bartramii is frequently found in hammocks of the Florida peninsula from just north of Lake Okeechobee to the Suwannee River and from Jefferson County to Gulf County in the panhandle.
It can also be found in Georgia, South Carolina and Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Bartram's airplant is an epiphyte, anchoring itself on trees with its wiry roots, but not deriving any nutrition from the tree, unlike a parasite. It is and evergreen herb forming dense clusters of stiff, spreading leaves on the branches and trunks of trees. The needle-like Leaves are covered with pinkish-gray scales, less than a quarter inch wide except for the widened triangular base, and six to 16 inches long. Flowers appear in spring and summer at the end of three to six inch long stalks ending in rose-red overlapping bracts, with 5-20 flowers emerging from the bracts. The corolla is narrow and tubular, made up of three violet petals. Fruit is a narrow brown tubular capsule about an inch long that opens into three parts releasing plumed seeds.
