A rather large growing, medium green, stiff, thorny plant. The tall inflorescence is perennial, blooming repeatedly. The tubular yellow and orange flowers are frequented by hummingbirds. This clone has something of a history. We got it from the old ‘Fantastic Gardens’ in Miami, after the Wilsons sold the nursery and moved to Costa Rica. Bob Wilson said that this plant was collected by Mulford Foster in Brazil many, many years ago and given to him. It was a giant plant when I got it, also many years ago. So, get a seedling of this plant and you own a piece of bromeliad history!
