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.

RE: A recent trip to Michael's Bromeliads

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).


 o
RE: A recent trip to Michael's Bromeliads

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


 o
RE: A recent trip to Michael's Bromeliads

Thats probaly a question for Mr Beadle himself :)

RE: A recent trip to Michael's Bromeliads

Hey! Thanks!

RE: A recent trip to Michael's Bromeliads

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.
