A new nothogenera: xSincorglaziovia is a hybrid created here by Ray Lemieux of (Neoglaziovia variegata x Sincoraea albopictum) and first published in the BSI Journal, Vol. 61 (5) Sep. Oct. 2012. Ray made the cross back in 2006 and when it finally bloomed for the first time in 2011 he thought he a recreated the pineapple! The inflorescence emerging between the stiff leaves looked a lot like the inflorescence of a pineapple. Of the many seed produced, only 1/3 germinated and only a single seedling survived!
An unusual plant with half inch wide leaves in an upright rosette taper to a point. The foliage is silver-gray below and glabrous reddish-purple above in good light, with faint cross bands of silver. Marginal spines are tiny, giving a more serrated than spiny appearance. The inflorescence is a cluster of short, green branches on a short scape and the flowers light pinkish lavender with an open corolla. A terrestrial, it grows in clusters with abundant offsets.
