NEOREGELIA ‘Red Of Rio’ Ferris, O.*? <1962

cv. of collected seed - Ferris says, "I bought it as an offset from a seedling from seed from the mountains overlooking Rio (hence the name) - it appears to be similar but slightly larger than 'Fireball'" (syn. 'Fireball' (?)) Butcher says, "An apparent true species 15-18 cm diameter w/12 leaves"- forms dense clumps - now a breeding strain in Australia.

Seed Parent: syn. Fireball
