A cross made by Steve Correale is not only unusual, but really does not strongly resemble either of the parent plants. The foliage is broad, channeled and tapers to a fine point, much like a typical T. fasciata, which should be familiar to many. Tillandsia foliosa has softer, green foliage and the leaves of concolor are much smaller and narrow but stiff. The inflorescence is erect with a cluster of glossy, deep red-burgundy branches. Scape bracts are very long and leaf-like and the floral bracts are broad and much shorter. A handsome, unusual plant.
