Family Bromeliaceae
Originating from Bolivia

So little is known about Puyas in cultivation and so many are wrongly labelled in the nursery trade that its virtually impossible for us to guarantee that the plants we're supplying are indeed Puya ferruginea, other than they are grown from seed that was labelled Puya ferruginea.
They are 2 years old, have survived -6 degrees in an unheated greenhouse (we haven't tried them outdoors yet) and have grey/green leaves with the most nasty little inward facing spines. Here's the photo - you judge.
Grow in really well-drained soil in sun.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 1m
Spread 75cm
