Don't know what I was looking at, but I kinda liked how it looked

I didn't know what it was, but I liked how it looked

Was at the Mitchell Park Conservatory in Milwaukee last weekend. Saw this plant with a long skinny pineapple trunk and propeller leaves in front of a humongous palm leaf thingy.

Shot it with a 200mm lens and an off-camera flash on a bracket to throw a tad more light into the fuzzy propeller tree and separate it more from the palmy whatsit behind it.

Bet you can't tell that I never studied horticulture, can you?
