Wonderful capture. Not 100% sure on the ID. But almost sure it's a bromliad of some sort.

Nearest ID I could find was the link below There is a similar one here.

They're Aloe blossoms.... Without being able to see the leaves, it's impossible to say which type of aloe, though -- they are hundreds of possibilities.

Wonderful capture!!!

If you say so.... I mean, you saw the plant in person so only you'd know what the leaves look like ;) -- do note, though, that there are quite a few Aloe varieties with "zebra striped" leaves. You can always check with the botanical garden whose collection you found this in -- they should have a database of what plants are in their collection. IF you're really set on a definitive ID that's the best route to travel ;)
