TILLANDSIA ‘Werner's Wonder’ Tristram P* n/a

Imported by Peter Tristram, NSW, Australia in about 1988 from WK Bromeliads (Werner Krauspe), USA, along with T. multicaulis, all still on habitat branches. On flowering it showed white petals and lateral spikes and over the years there has been speculation that it is a natural hybrid and as to the likely parentage. Never been reported from the wild since and assumed to be from Guatemala. Finally decided to give it a cultivar name . Plant 40 - 60 cms. diameter, 40 -60 cms high including main spike.
