Info

One of the thrills of 2005 was receiving seed collected by Mike Remmick at over 6000' in the coast range of Central Chile. This is one of the most dazzling of the Puyas with clumping 3' rosettes so glaucous as to appear nearly white, and on this form the deep blue-black flowers were supported by 6-8' stems of nice pink. This collection is particularly exciting as, most forms in cultivation having been coastal, this seed came from plants growing among even the Krumholtz timberline of Nothofagus obliqua. Took our rather nasty January 2007 extended cold spell of at least 19 °F in stride. Woo hoo! Expected to be hardy to between 10 and 15 °F, lower USDA Zone 8, given bright conditions and well-drained soil. A great pot plant.
