Pitcirnia--A Bromeliad

I don't know much about this plant which is blooming at the UC Botanical Garden, but isn't it pretty? Almost all plants in this genus are native to the new world. It is in the bromeliad family, whose most familier member is the pineapple. Pitcairnias apparently do well as houseplants, but this one does well growing outside.
