NEOREGELIA ‘Dexter's Pride’ Foster, M. (Dexter*) 1950

cv. of fosteriana(?) X spectabilis(?) - (Other cvs. = 'Fosperior' & 'Morris Henry Hobbs') - Foster distributed seed or seedlings from this grex to Dr. Morris Dexter and Morris Henry Hobbs - each selected a cultivar and named it - Dexter's choice he called 'Dexter's Pride' - The large burgundy rosette is essentially identical to the other two cultivars and are probable selections from an F-1 grex? - Other scenarios exist for the origin of these cultivars but this version seems to predominate.

Seed Parent: fosteriana? Pollen Parent: spectabilis?
