VRIESEA ‘Nigra’ n/a <1938

A selected clone of splendens w/very dark almost black foliage and patterning - Plaza Nursery said, "This plant forms an open rosette w/green maroon leaves heavily cross banded w/dark maroon to black markings - Inflorescence is an upright tall spike w/orange red bracts and yellow flowers". A plant being grown in Australia as 'Nigra' is a probable mis-spelling of 'Rubra' See notes under this name .Splendens Group
