Spanish moss is in full bloom
Spanish moss is in full bloom here in Savannah and Port Wentworth
Family: Bromeliaceae (bromeliad or pineapple Family)
Tillandsia are epiphytes and need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. The roots are used as anchors only.
Two photos of the "Seed Pods" Fall 2008.
These will open and dandelion like seeds will fly away
