SBHMPS 6285. Our collection from northwest Argentina at nearly 10,000'. Gracefully arching, very shiny leaves tinted red are stunning growing from a high cliff. Luckily you do not have to hang by your ankles to have this plant. Has flowered for us with rosey red, 2' spikes with a celadon blue flower, a color that should not be found in nature. Should be hardy to at least 10 to 15 °F, mid USDA Zone 8, making it one of the toughest bromeliads for garden use. Full sun to dappled shade; good drainage.

We first became familiar with the hardy bromeliad Puya dyckioides on our 2002 Argentina trip, where Sean Hogan spotted it growing on a cliff around 10,000' elevation. We subsequently (2005) planted offspring in our garden which have grown vigorously ever since, experiencing temperatures of 12 degrees F with only slight tip burn. The olive-green spiny leaves form a fast offsetting 2' tall x 4' wide patch in 5 years. Starting in early May (NC), the bizarre 30" tall, fleshy pink flower spikes with aquamarine tips top the clump. We have found Puya dyckioides to grow equally as well in full to part sun as long as the winter drainage is good. We are thrilled to be able to finally share this
