|BILLBERGIA ‘Vexillaria’||Andre <1889|
(See 'Andegavensis' & 'Jenischiana') - Dutrie said, "..have a strong, compact, pyramidal spike, on an upright stem, the petals dark violet and the bracts brilliant red, the flowers producing a grand effect, but lasting only a few days". note that the plant photographed in JBS 37: 248.1987 and said to be a remake has spotted leaves which differs from the original. We can only assume that the true 'Vexillaria' is not in cultivation.
|Seed Parent: morelii||Pollen Parent: thyrsoidea splendida|
