Tillandsia 'Amazing Grace'
Tillandsia 'Arco Iris'
A stunning hybrid of (chiapensis x tricolor) takes on the very best of both species. In general the shape is like that of tricolor, an open rosette of narrow, fairly stiff leaves. They differ from the wide leaves of chiapensis but take on the silvery coloration of that species. The inflorescence is taller than the foliage, with a central spike and three or four side branches, rather like the shape of the tricolor parent. The color is glossy red in the center with a dusting of silver trichomes towards the margins, which appear pink. Immature branches are yellow and flowers blue. A very colorful hybrid!
A surprising and unusual hybrid of (flabellata x utriculata). What a graceful beauty! The plant forms a large open rosette of narrow gray-green leaves and will reward you with an amazing inflorescence. The spike is about 24 inches tall in a pyramid of slender red, yellow and orange branches. Grow mounted or potted in a very well draining mix.
This beautiful hybrid of (polystachia x capitata) by Steve Correalle is a full rosette of recurving, light green leaves. An inflorescence with long red scape bracts and a cluster of glabrous, red-tipped green branches rises well above the foliage.
Tillandsia 'Christian Knuth'
A colorful hybrid of (capitata ‘Red’ x concolor ‘Cuicatlan’) by Bill Timm. Bill has been a prolific hybridizer of Tillandsias, creating quite a few unique crosses. This one is a medium sized plant about 12 inches tall when in bloom, with stiff glabrous green leaves in an open rosette shape. The inflorescence is about 6 inches tall with very long, stiff, scape bracts and a cluster of erect yellowish branches. The scape bracts and upper whorl or two of leaves blush deep reddish at anthesis. A colorful plant that will grow easily and add color to your collection.
Tillandsia 'Classic Rouge'
A hybrid of (fasciculata (Mexico) x flabellata ‘Giant Red’) showing influence of both parents. A silvery-gray rosette of stiff, half-inch, tapering leaves in an open, arching rosette with an inflorescence of slender, upright, dark red branches. A showy, long-lasting beauty.
An Australian hybrid of (concolor x ionantha) by Margaret Paterson. A robust plant with many stiff, pointed leaves in an 8 to 10 inch rosette. The leaf color is light green with a dusting of silvery trichomes. There is no color blush at anthesis in spite of the ionantha parentage, but rather it produces a very short but very full and branchy inflorescence with red bracts and bluish-purple flowers.
A choice, easy to cultivate plant.
