Tillandsia 'Chévere' is an unusual Tillandsia hybrid of limbata x paraensis by Bill Timm. About as different as you can get from one another, one parent, paraensis, being a soft leaved and bulbous based with a branched pink inflorescence with somewhat inflated bracts and not particularly easy to grow. The other parent, limbata, is an upright rosette of fairly stiff, tapering leaves up to 20 inches long that bears a very tall, branched inflorescence of red, but that is not particularly beautiful.

The hybrid of the two is very pretty, medium-large in size with an upright vase shape of narrow, somewhat stiff leaves of silvery gray. The inflorescence is a branched scape, about a foot taller than the rosette, with inflated pink bracts and light blue flowers.
