The same tolerance for sunlight can be said of most gardeners, too. We enjoy a bright spot in the garden, but very few of us enjoy working in the hot afternoon sun. There are some bromeliads species that will grow and thrive in the most intense sunlight we have to offer, and as such these plants are also fairly thrifty in their water demands. Let's look at some of these plants, many of which are rock or tree-dwellers. The plants might be a little hard to find, but there are several bromeliad societies in Florida and California, and their plant sales are excellent.
