My friend wants to know. I thought it might be a bleeding heart but it also looks sorta like a bird of paradise

Not a bleeding heart - at least not the kind that grows in my area.

Sure looks gingerish to me,too. It would be helpful if we could see the whole plant...the foliage.

The Name That Plant did it again! It was identified as Aechmea chantinii, a bromiliad, by saltcedar. He's one of the wizards in the forum.
