TILLANDSIA ‘Dylan’ ? / Chris Larson* <1990

Mature, large rosette to 70cm. diameter x 70cm. high in flower. Foliage height 45cm. Wide, stiff scurfed, grey-green basal leaf sheaths, the curved blades tapering to a point. Erect or leaning varied, branched inflorescence of predominantly light amber yellow adpressed bracts edged red and graduating to green tips or vermillion red bracts phasing to lime green tips, the longest branch being 30cm, .plus mauve tubular flowers. This plant is assumed to have been imported to Australia around the early 1990's from either Mexico or the USA but it's exact origin is unrecorded. Thought by some Aussies to be within the range of T. magnispica or a form of T.jalisco-monticola but the status of this plant is dubious, so it was decided to give it a cultivar name as a reference. Named after Dylan Larson, the registrant's son. Reg. Doc. 6/2018 by Chris Larson
