crocata Brandywine
Tillandsia Species
Status: 3

Tillandsia crocata Brandywine is a new addition that is most interesting. This plant may very well be a natural hybrid between T. crocata and something else like T. recurvatat but we don't know at this time. The stems are a wine red and the leaves are thinner and the trichome wings (the white fuzz on the leaves) are not as coarse (fuzzy) as those of the standard T. crocata. The flowers are smaller and have some brown besides the yellow and yes, they are wonderfully fragrant.
