|NEOREGELIA ‘Braz-el’||Smythe, R.*||?|
named for a plant circulating in Australia as 'species from Brazel' featured in Zaghini's book. Alas, we know not the origin nor the species this is supposed to represent, nor the quaint spelling of the name. It needs a cultivar name and 'Brazil' has already been used. 11/2007, we now know that the photo in Zaghini's book was taken in Hawaii and that the plant is widely grown in Hawaii as correia-araujoi.
