|BILLBERGIA ‘Grande’||Kashkin, M.*||1960s|
cv. of an unknown hybrid formerly labelled 'Gerda' throughout the USA - A medium loose rosette in plum and black - this is clearly a mistake - in the late 70's this plant was found at Lotusland in Los Angeles labelled 'Grande' and represented as a hybrid w/Neoregelia 'Grande' which it is probably not. The name 'Grande' is proposed to identify this dark plum colored cultivar and eliminating confusion with the Foster cultivar 'Gerda'.
