Of course when you are in South Florida, it would be hard to resist a visit to Michael's Bromeliads.

Thanks for the photos. I'm due for a trip back there again. Like HDD says, always new things to find. It seems to get better every year.

marleneann, it looks a lot like Vr. 'Ewalu to me, but it might possibly be its sibling, 'Ehiku. The amount of foliage color in this group can vary a lot with the season and the growing conditions.

Here is a link that might be useful: Color by numbers

I will be honest with you, Michael rattled off the names of all the Vrieseas, but all that I remember is that they were Hawaiian. So Kudos to Lisa. I actually purchased a few of the Bilbergias pictured but you can probabbly guess thet the Vrieseas were not for sale. Here are a few more pics:

There are two Don Beadle hybrids in the first photo. The pinker one on the right is Hallelujah x kuhlmanii, the one on the left is vittata x Caramba. The Neo. is Red Plate (cultivar of Sheer Joy).

Is that crossed with the real kuhlmanii or the one we know as brasiliense as per Auntie M's article?

Sorry for the long delay but hdd is right on with the billbergias. I checked my tags. The vitata x Caramba gets huge by the way. The neo, if my memory serves me right is one of Michael's hybrids he plans to name.
