A beautiful hybrid of (tricolor x fasciculata) that we got many years ago from famous bromeliad breeder and promoter; Ervin Wurthman. A robust plant to about 24 inches tall, with narrow, gracefully arching reddish, somewhat silver dusted leaves in an upright rosette. The inflorescence is a tall red and yellow scape that is usually well branched. Ervin told us that he had gotten this plant long ago as a natural hybrid from Mexico. Years later, even after Ervin had passed away in 2004, we decided to name this plant after him. Easily adaptable to pot culture.
