- Note (15957): John Breaux (2019-10-25) - I acquired this specimen from NOLA Botanical Gardens plant sale several years ago. It was marked Billbergia 'Queen's Tears". I later learned "Queen's Tears" is simply a slang term for billbergia in general. I was visiting a colleague's collection and found an identical specimen labeled Billbergia saundersii. I confirmed with a brief google image search of the name and am fairly convinced this is accurately identified. Hope this images are helpful in future identification.
- Identification (15957): Derek Butcher (2019-10-31) =Billbergia 'Hoelscheriana'
- There seems to be a strong influence of B. nutans in the flower. Billbergia hybrids are much more common than species. Check detail in the BCR Bromeliad Cultivar Register website (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
