Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides)

+

This strange ‘air plant’ occurs naturally from Argentina to the southern United States, including the Louisiana bayous. It is not a moss at all, but a member of the pineapple family (Bromeliaceae), which is often found hanging on the branches of trees. It looks similar to Usnea, an unrelated lichen which also grows on tree branches, and this is reflected in the species name ‘usneoides’.

*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.
