A cross of (ionantha ‘red’ x bulbosa lg form) by Bill Timm. Kind of unique we think because usually anything crossed with ionantha ends up looking more like a big ionantha. Tillandsia‘Luke’ is an exception, with a bulbous base and upright habit, it resembles the bulbosa parent. More silvery than green it also has many more leaves than a bulbosa.
When blooming the whole upper whorl of leaves and the inflorescence blushes red with blue flowers. It is a stunning plant, not large, but showy.
