|xANDROLAECHMEA ‘Leonard Skinnard’||Skotak, Chester||1995|
Large mature rosette to 60cms. diameter x 60cms. tall in spike. Spineless, broad grey/green bronzed leaves with silver scurf. In some cultural conditions /climates, the leaves outer portions can turn red. Upright inflorescence of pink scape bracts and a branched dense panicle of creamy white ovaries tipped pink and blue petals.The cultivar name is a play on the pollen parent species name--not named after a known living person. In error, many years before registration, this cultivar acquired the wrong name of "Lynyrd Skynyrd" (a rock band). Reg. Doc. 9/2012 by Eloise Beach.
