Bromeliad Cultivar Register (11015)


Aechmea orlandiana is a favourite plant for growers especially in Florida. If there was the slightest variation it was given a Cultivar name. It was no different with the variegated forms. Crossing and back crossing with ‘Bert’ also gave A. orlandiana look-alikes. No doubt there have been others given these ‘fancy names’ but not registered. Entering Orlandiana Group in the notes section in Advanced Search will give a list of those registered. This entry 3/2012 by D. Butcher
