Epc. Rene Marques ‘Tyler’

This is one of my favorite epicatts.  Aside from being easy to grow, the colors really are that vivid.  It’s only got one spike with one flower and another bud, but last year I saw one that won an award at the SEPOS show at Longwood Gardens that was spectacular, so I know it has potential if I can keep the summer rain from rotting the new growths as they emerge.  Hopefully, we’ll get the greenhouse built in time.

Anyone know whether this is Rene Marques, or Renee Marques?  I swear I’ve seen tags for these things spelled both ways, but it wouldn’t be the first time something has been misspelled on a tag.  Never in the history, right?
