Billbergia vittata 'Domingos Martins'
Maybe the most popular and most sought after Billbergia species ever. This stunning cultivar has been the plant of choice for Billbergia hybridizers ever since its introduction by Bob Whitman in the ‘80s. Collected on ‘Kautsky’s Mountain’ near the town of Domingos Martins, it was originally describes as a new species; domingosmartinsis, but later made a cultivar of vittata.
With proper (hard) culture this plant becomes tightly tubular and its spiny, banded leaves show a great deal of white blotching. The inflorescence is amazingly showy. An outstanding plant in every way.
Billbergia 'Teng Ee'
Don Beadle’s cultivar of ‘Afterglow’ x ‘Hallelujah‘ is an 18 inch tall flaring tube, vividly colored with red, pink and white. The leaf edges have obvious spines.
Billbergia 'Las Manchas'
Billbergia amoena SU262
A large growing form of this Brazilian species. Reaching up to 20 inches tall and nearly as broad, it grows on stout stolons. Foliage is light green with black marginal spines.
The inflorescence is large and erect with showy rose colored bracts and blue tipped green flowers. An easy grower that looks its best in a hanging basket or mounted.
