TILLANDSIA ‘Curly Top’ ? / Margaret Butcher* before 1990

A cultivar of T. ionantha that was selected by Chris Larson from stock held at Gardenworld, Victoria, Australia. Origin is somewhat clouded because this company did import from Alfred Lau in Mexico and later from sources in Guatemala. Known for its extra curly leaves, if grown in the tropics or a humid glasshouse. Mature size is to about 15cm. high x 9cm. wide. In dry heat conditions it tends to mature sooner, flower smaller and the curly leaves are not as pronounced. Ionantha Group. Reg. Doc. 3/2011 by C Larson.
Country of origin: Australia
