|AECHMEA ‘Azur Nigra’||Hummel||<1967|
cv. of unknown parentage - (See 'Reubens' & 'Rufescens') - Thelma O'Reilly relates that in late 1967 she obtained three seedlings from the Hardins who were close friends of the Hummels - The seedlings were from a flat obtained from the Hummels which probably contained a grex of unknown parentage - The three she selected have retained their identity as 'Rubens', 'Rufenses' and 'Azur Nigra' - She describes 'Azur Nigra' as, "Pure matte black with no gloss - tall upright to 18" - very reluctant bloomer" - red upright inflorescence w/dense yellow-pink blooms. It has also been suggested that parentage could be nudicaulis x triangularis.
