This is a marvelous hybrid by Bullis Bromeliads, of indeterminate parentage but likely based on Ae. tessmannii. The foliage is beautifully banded, silver over deep green in an arching rosette to nearly 3 feet tall. The inflorescence is a massive head of yellow and pink branches, with bright pink bracts. A stunning beauty.
