Tillandsia purpurea (giant clone)
We had been growing this as T. straminea (giant clone). At one time we considered it a hybrid with T. purpurea, but know believe it to be T. purpurea. It grows quite large, with a long caulescent base. The inflorescence is shorter than that of T. straminea, but branched, purple and fragrant. We rarely offer this clone available.
