Puya laxa, 10 seeds

An rarely offered small-size Puya, originating not Chile as with most Puyas, but from Argentina. At first glance and without bloom, this perennial doesn't look like a bromelaid at all, as its foliage is covered with a white fuzz that makes it seems like an innocent little plant. Closer inspection will reveals the wicked spines along the leaf edges, as with most Puyas. Blooms in late spring, and the flowers of P. laxa are teal blue with pink calyx, individually not very showy but as they are massed along arching inflorescences held high above the foliage, the effect is very pleasant, somewhat like Angel Fishing Rods (Dierama sp) in my opinion. Hardy from zone 9 onwards. 1 1/2 feet tall and wide. Full sun and warm soil. Drought tolerant when established. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 11/2014.

Our website for actively-growing plants and cuttings (eclecticplants.ecrater.com) is now re-opened starting 6/2/2014.
