Puya dyckioides, 10 seeds
Here is yet another rare and unusual terrestrial bromelaid related to pineapples, but unlike most of my other Puyas, this one is native to Argentina. Puya dyckioides can also be differentiated from its cousins by its softer, more arching, grass-like foliage with smaller spines along the edge. Blooming starts in spring and the flowering stalk starts off peachy-pink, aging to dark red. Each exquisite flower is purplish blue with orange stamens, extremely beautiful and contrasty. Again an impressive plant that will get passerbys talking, :-). Hardy from zone 9 onwards. 3 feet tall and wide. Full sun and warm soil. Drought tolerant when established. Very rare seeds, harvested 08/2017.
