I love Hohenbergia. Their toughness, individuality & weirdness. Some say the flowers are a tad dull & ordinary, but I do not grow many Broms for their flowers.

I grow, well attempt to;

H antillana
H augusta
H burle-marxii
H castellanosii
H catingae var. elongata
H correia-araujoi
H leopoldo-horstii (2 of my 3 are flowering for first time)
H loepoldo-horstii hybrid (probably vestita x)
H pennae
H rosea
H stellata (pink)
H vestita

I also have disjuncta but aint it an aechmea now?
And I bought what was called H lanata and H salzmannii; but I believe both are Ae floribunda - still lovely though!

Hey Michael, you can't count, you got more than 10! And thanks to you for 3 of mine above.

I would kill for a H edmundoi & H flava. Do you/anyone know if they are in Oz yet?

I would not kill, but would pay for eximbricarta and inermis!!???

Now let's try posting pics in this new you-beaut forum..

My leopoldo-horstii and their byrbid brothers...

Gidday shane , recent pics posted on brom-l have made me think one of the 'lanata' forms from Olive could be flava.

Interesting Michael. My lanata came from GB of Yeppoon way - I am sure you know him, back in 2007. Loves full sun, no feed, no care and gets a mulberry to silver & purple colour. But very slow growing!

Mine is totally different to those you show from Sue - yet (mine) are very close to what I got as salzmannii from a Cairns seller.

Impressive collections of Hohenbergias!  Together with Dennis, I will stand in the rear with my three only.

Hoh stellata.  A large, green plant, but the inflo made me get it.  And it has started pushing out its flower spike!

Hoh castellanosii.  I am still battling to get some red tips on my plant.

And then Hoh correia-araujoi.  I like the compact look and colour of the plant grown in full sun, but then the leave tips start to die.  So I moved my plant to a little more shade - still very bright light with some direct sun on and off through the day - and now the leave tips stay healthy, but the new leaves get a little bit longer.  The colour is still good.

The next two that I have my aim on, are burle-marxii and leopoldo-horstii

...only 6 or 7, but the better answer is not enough!
Hoh. lanata (tall skinny one, not the salzmanii/floribunda one)
Hoh. leo-horstii
Hoh. cor-ar
Hoh. c-a x l-h
Hoh. stellata
Hoh. 'from Burle Marx's garden'

I think I have another one...better go out and check.

That's a nice looking cross aroideana.  Nice bright color.  And Japie...I'm (of course and again) jealous!  I cannot get my C-A to grow anywhere near that nicely.  Well done!  Great looking plants everyone.

Let's see...... stellata, correia-araujoi, rosea, castellanosii, vestita and antillana.  That's six. 

Now that it's turning to fall here, it's only a matter of time before castellanosii starts losing color again, but I've got one right now that is pretty spectacular.  I'll try to get a pic before it fades.  Stay tuned..........

I've just noticed this thread. This a big forum and it's hard to get into every corner with limited time.

I am gradually building my Hohenbergia collection. These are great broms. There is a certain rugged differentness about them.

So far I have:
H augusta
H castellanosii
H catingae I think
H correia-araujoi
H leopoldo-horstii
H stellata (pink)
H shalzmanii is promised to me when pup matures. A bit of doubt about this one.
H correia-araujoi x Aechmea chantinii

Lisa can't wait for photo of your H castellanosii. This would have to be my favourite and initially drew me to this genus.

Cheers
Brod

Hi all.

I've been lurking on this new forum with great interest, but have been trying to sort out all my trip photos so I can post some to illustrate aspects of my great U.S. brom adventure. This topic is close to my heart, so I've gotta jump in.

I grow quite a few, and have just added several more - still in quarantine and struggling for life since their cruel gassing...unfortunately, some have not made it.

Ones I already had include:    Ho. castellanosii (still no red on leaves either Japie),
                                               correia-araujoi
                                               catingae var. eximbricata
                                               catingae var. elongata
                                               catingae var. extensa (? maybe - certainly different to the other varieties of catingae)
                                               inermis
                                               antillana - it and inermis look identical to me, although neither have flowered yet (what's the difference 'Roid?)  
                                               burle-marxii (thanks Shane!)
                                               augusta
                                               leopoldo-horstii
                                               vestita
                                               seedlings of l-h x vestita (maybe?)
                                               rosea
                                               rosea x stellata (interesting cross)
                                               stellata (red-bracted)
                                               stellata (pink-bracted)
                                               disjuncta (now Aechmea according to Leme)
                                               false lanata (really the smaller form of Ae. floribunda)
                                               had that Aussie-furphy salzmannii (larger form of Ae. floribunda) and pennae, but lost both in black frost of '07  Sad


And then I was lucky to purchase these on my recent U.S. trip:

                                          Ho. lanata (the REAL one, tall, skinny and very scurfy)  - Death By Gas (DBG)  Cry
                                               distans - DBG  Cry
                                               attenuata
                                               flava
                                               edmundoi  (gulp...better keep clear of that murderous Bromaholic!)
                                               lemei
                                               two other forms of catingae (one really nice purple form)
                                               undulatifolia
                                               spinulosa
                                               ridleyi

Am crossing all appendages that the rest of those, above, survive their quarantine stint post-gassing!

My U.S. summer trip coincided with the flowering season of Ho. castellanosiii - and boy! - did I see some wonderful red specimens in my travels! - including at Lisa's.

This was the most red of them all, seen and photographed at Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Miami. Check it out!

I also photographed some magnificent large specimens of Ho. burle-marxii, including one in bloom at the home garden of Dean Fairchild in Apopka, Florida. Will show them when I've made smaller copies.

Bring on more Ho.s!

Cheers,
Kerry  Cheesy

Okay, I got my camera back from my husband, but I see that Kerry has beat me to posting some pics of H. castellanosii.   Tongue

Oh well, mine don't have as much red on them as those blooming specimens at Fairchild (I'm coming to the conclusion that there is a connection between foliage color and blooming in this species after all), BUT...... I think perhaps I can make up for it in brightness of light conditions.  Check it out:

Has your rosea x stellata cross bloomed yet, K?  I'd like to see that, sounds interesting.

Kerry and Lisa,

Great looking castellanosiis.

Can anyone tell me how much sun I can expose Hoh. Rosea to get it looking as nice as Lisas.

Thanks,

Rick

Fantastic pics Kerry, Japie, Shane and Lisa.
Gee i'm really feeling like a small ant here so i'm not even going to list my small growing collection of Hohs.

It's nothing special but I will share my Bigeneric xHohenelia 'Nifty Nev' which is Hohenbergia disjuncta X Quesnelia edmundoi var. edmundoi.
