A Photo A Day - No. 360

Tillandsia usneonides
From the Bromeliaceae Family
AKA Old Man's Beard, Spanish Moss, Grey Beard or Tree Beard
Known as an air plant as they don't require soil to grow,
getting their water from the air.
Here I mist them during our hot, dry summers
and they are safe in the shade house from our winter frosts.

This is the first time I've noticed the very tiny flowers
that are described as insignificant.
