Quill-Leaf Air Plant at Big Cypress National Preserve
About This Image
Like Spanish Moss, the Quill Leaf is also an air plant. This year they bloomed later than normal so we were treated to their beautiful colors throughout the Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida where they had attached themselves to cypress and fir trees.
From a distance they resemble birds nests, but on closer inspection they are a beautiful flowering parasitic plant that grow to 24 inches, with 6' flowers. They are generally found in Florida's cypress swamps.
