Puya chilensis

28th March 2006

A large growing species from Chile with silvery leaves. My little plant is quite an ancient specimen _ I have had it for 15 years, and it really needs to be fed and watered a bit more to grow to full size (about 2m)! I really like it,but every now and then it sticks a little needle sharp spine in my hand and I swear like a trucker who's lost his Yorkie!
