I'm not really sure, the inflorescence of a succulent anyway.
Is this flower enough, Mariana? ;-)
My (old) coffee-table book of selected postings.

@Marie LC: Possibly, yes. Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of the sign with its name.
Have no clue :)) But , who cares, it is amazing closeup . Beautiful DOF !

@MARIANA: Thanks very much!
Beautiful color and a great detail. I love the "half-bloomed" look. :-) The pods are just as intriguing as the blossoms.

@Steven: It flowers for several weeks. The tip isn't yet finished, while the bottom is already wilting.
This looks like a "hot poker" but that flower is not a tropical... Any orchids in the mix?

@Christine Walsh: Nope, it's a succulent, placed in a greenhouse together with other agaves, cacti, euphorbias etc.
Very beautiful, like spending a weekend in Rio...

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Tell me more! ;-)
I'm guessing a funny pineapple.

@JoeB: That would be a Bromelia, then.
