Thought we'll show a pic of a vriesea as we haven't shown any for a while- this one caught our eyes while watering. It's Vr Gold Curls made from Vr Yellow Wave x fenestralis

Jaga, that's one of the best examples of this cross that I've seen mostly because the percentage of white is way up. Great collect! I'd love to grab a pup when the time comes!

Opps forgot to say it's an Andrew Malloy cross. No signs of pup yet- still growing bigger which we like,  it's the closest thing we have to a big fenestralis type vriseas like the aussies have.
Peter & Mitche what shall we cross this with!!!

Still Lisa, those few slow to flower 'Gulz fenestralises' in your shade house are the best I've ever seen for form + markings and I'd do a days hard labour shifting rocks in your garden for some of that seed!

Hi Jaga,

Fantastic!  Love the pattern and the shape.  With all that fenestralis in it, how do you find it copes with the cold?

Cheers, Paul

Paul, it was nearly 2 years ago to the day when we brought 2 'Gold curls' at the 'Broms in the Park', which is happening again this sunday. the plant we have posted has been kept in our make shift plastic enclosure and the second has been outside through 2 winters now, its much greener as its in semi shade and has slightly wider leaves than the above but is in very good shape - not too much damage from the cold, must be the Yellow wave in it.

Gold curls in the garden- should have cleaned up first ah !

Our yellow wave also resides in the garden, taken a battering with the easterly wind we get off the sea, but holding up well.

Hi jaga,

Thanks for the info, that sure does look pretty tough.  It's a beaut plant as it is, but what a great new starting point that toughness makes it for the next round of hybrids.  If you get some selfings to take on it and run out of places to put all the seed, I'll help!!!!   You'd think there would have to be great potential for getting some stand-out assortments from that genetic lucky dip.

Cheers, Paul

Jaga, that Yellow Wave plant is gorgeous, strikingly patterned.  Feel free to ship a pup halfway round the globe to San Diego if you wish!

How did I miss this post, lol.  Jaga that Gold Curls and Yellow Waves are both stunning broms, I have not seen either of them over here.... but I'm still pretty new so not sure if that's cause they are only in NZ or I just haven't been out enough Wink
Thanks heaps for sharing the pics. 
I love seeing vriesea pics, and it seems you all have some real stunners in NZ, pity how hard it is to get them from there to here and vice versa.  If anyone ever has any seeds they be willing to share to me over here  Wink  Wink  Wink sing out and let me know, I'd love to grow some gorgeous Vrieseas from my homeland.

Hi everyone,

Jaga, I too have only just seen this post. What a great looking plant. Really a great tonic for the eyes.

Thanks for sharing

Allthe best, Nev.
