BILLBERGIA ‘Leodiensis’ Witte, Hort. Leod. 1894

(See 'Carminea', 'Joseph Marechal', 'Intermedia', 'Marechalii', 'Rosea', 'Salmonea' 'Vittato-Nutans', & 'Ultrajactensis') Theodore L Mead's notebook of 1926 shows that he had successfully crossed nutans with vittata but never named. It could well be the source of B. 'Leodiensis' as a re-make in the USA.
