Mystery Plant

What Is This?

The blue and reds are so vibrant on this plant, it caught my eye from across the conservatory.  The plant was screaming, “Come take my picture!”  (I never know if the closed quotation mark comes before or after the punctuation ending a sentence.)

I found this in the Des Moines Botanical Gardens.  The spiked “branches” coming off the main stem are 3-4″ long.  I have no idea what this plant is called.

If you know anything about plants, or punctuation, please educate me.
