John Arden’s cultivar of (jaliscomonticola x xerographica) is nothing short of spectacular! A big, robust plant from two outstanding parents. Adapting the best characteristics of both, the leaves are moderately broad and tapering, arching in a 24 inch, silver rosette.
The inflorescence is massive, a tall scape with long, leaf-like, silvery scape bracts. A cluster of five or six inch long branches are mostly upright, red on the bottoms and yellow or yellow-green on top. Flowers are blue.
The plant will stay in bloom and color for most of a year. It is also said that this plant can be found as a natural hybrid in its Southwestern Mexican habitat. For lovers of large Tillandsias, this is a must-have!
