Tillandsia 'Pink Velvet'
C.I.T.E.S. - The harrisii parent makes this plant ineligible for shipping outside of the U.S. Sorry!
(One of the parent crosses, harrisii, is on CITES)
This is a natural hybrid of (capitata x harrisii) from Guatemala. An open rosette with white lepidote foliage that blushes pink in bloom to over 12 inches across. Blue flowers. Very attractive and long lasting.
One of the faster growers. Will in time form clumps of dozens of plants if conditions are right. From Argentina, it is cold hardy and tolerant of sun or shade. Delicate blue & white flowers have gently twisted petals.
Tillandsia 'Maya Red Cap'
A nice hybrid by Bill Timm, ('Rio Hondo’ X capitata ‘Red’). A medium sized plant with greenish foliage and a red capitate inflorescence.
A hybrid of (brachycaulos x streptophylla) by Paterson. A plant of variable size that may flower from 5 to 10 inches tall. Somewhat bulbous and upright, the leaves are reddish and lepidote, blushing red at anthesis. The inflorescence is capitate with blue flowers.
Tillandsia stricta Hard Leaf
An all-time favorite from Brazil is about 6 inches across in a leafy rosette with stiff gray-green leaves. It produces a stunning blue-flowered, plume-shaped pink inflorescence in the summer. In nature this plant can be found growing on the restinga sands of beach dunes and in trees in the foothills of the Atlantic Range in Brazil.
