|VRIESEA ‘Elite’||Duval, Unknown*||?|
cv. of 'Van Geertii' X 'Gloriosa' - (See 'Poelmanii') - Bromeliad Treasury said, "A cultivar selected by Duval from the 'Poelmanii' grex superior to any of the other selections - 15"-18" upright arching rosette composed of 1-1/2" x 15" medium green glossy leaves - the large branched inflorescence is carried on a husky green scape w/8-10 upright 6"-8" spikes w/brilliant red bracts and bright yellow flowers".BUT history shows us that Duval never had a branched 'Poelmanii'
