Dale Dixon ... "I bought this little hybrid as an unknown imported from the nursery of Burkhard Holm. After looking through the Holm hybrids registered on the BCR I think itís Tillandsia ĎHolmís Winter Suní. It clearly has characters from both parents - Tillandsia crocata and Tillandsia caliginosa. Scented too."
