Puya berteroana

17th January 2014

Puya berteroana is a large growing species from the foothills of the Andes in Chile. It produces tall heads of densely packed blue-green flowers. It is one of the species that is hardy on the coast locally and makes thick spiky clumps on Tresco. I have a single rosette at present and have planted it in the Agave house for now. Eventually I would like to have it outside on the side of a bank, and it will have to come out before it flowers (taller than the Agave house) but this youngster looked too fragile to risk.
Once it has savaged me a few times my heart might harden.
