The unusual metallic turquoise flowers are expected to last for around two weeks but it will sadly be the first and last time the plant blooms as they die shortly after the flowers fade. Puya berteroniana is now considered to be a hybrid and the plants occasionally found in cultivation (such as the one above) should be more properly regarded as Puya alpestris subsp. zoellneri.


Common Names include:
ENGLISH: Blue Puya
SPANISH (Español): Puya, Chagual, Cardon, Magüey
