VRIESEA ‘Angela’ ? / Larnach B* circa 1982

Mature rosette to 50cm. diameter. V. fosteriana type foliage with reddish under-leaves Erect spike with yellow bracts. Grex siblings. = V. 'Erotica' & 'Sister Angela'. Origin was seed off Peter Carney's (Sydney) plant of V. fosteriana, about 2000 seedlings raised by Lou Forrest (Cobra Creek Nursery). Later Bob Larnach (then called Exotica Vale Nurseries) grew on about 1000 two-year old seedlings from Lou Forrest, from which V. Angela and siblings were named. Probably a birds-n-bees hybrid (not selfed V. fosteriana) as the progeny showed considerable variation in foliage and inflorescences. Updated 4/2016 by G. Lawn.
Country of origin: N.S.W. Australia
