x Vriecantarea 'Julietta'
A giant grower from hybridizer David Fell in Hawaii. This plant is registered as an xVriecantarea but David lists it’s parents as (‘Volcano’s Mist’ x ‘Volcano’s Mist’) and ‘Volcano’s Mist’ is an Alcantarea. So, we are confused, where does the Vriesea come in? We are keeping the xVrecantarea name though as that is how the plant was registered with the BSI Cultivar Registrar.
It looks like a nice clone of Alcantarea imperialis with a leafy rosette of broad leaves, red with a veneer of silver in older plants. Highly decorative, it is popular with landscapers.
Alcantarea imperialis (brasiliana)
Not really imperialis or brasiliana, but a new species that will be called mucugensis.
Neoregelia 'Royal Burgundy'
A long time favorite with wide deep-burgundy leaves has become a standard in horticulture. Widely used in landscapes of central and southern Florida, this handsome bromeliad is a beautiful asset to any collection.
