|BILLBERGIA ‘Beaut Ruby’||? / Lawn G*|
Mature, tubular, vase-shaped rosette to 40cms. high. Bronze / brick red leaves with cream spotting and silver cross-banding on the reverse. Erect spike to 50cms. tall with rose-pink scape bracts, green sepals tipped blue and green petals tipped blue. Thought to be synonymous with the former B. amoena var. rubra, which in 1994 was reclassified as B. amoena var. amoena. To retain this distinctive cultivar's identity, it was decided to name and register it as B. 'Beaut Ruby'. Reg. Doc. 10/2014 by G. Lawn.
