'Walk Fast'

Came across these by the escalator as we came up from the basement car park at Gardens by the Bay. I took some photos and searched online for identification.
It is Xiphidium caeruleum or commonly known as 'Walk Fast', Cola de Paloma or Soskia. A native of the West Indies. Was it some how telling me to walk fast in the gardens and get a good exercise. More interesting facts about this plant here.


  1. Well it might be called walk fast but you stopped and took the photo and what a treat, lovely flowers thanks for stopping and nit walking fast

  2. Very pretty ! I agree with Margaret ;-)
