Puya raimondii - Queen of the Andes

This listing is for 10 seeds of rare giant of the bromeliad world.

Native to South America, this is a large growing plant that will form a rosette of up to 3 metres across. It will flower once in its life producing a spike of up to 10 metres tall with many thousands of flower and millions of seeds. For most of its life, it will just be an attractive rosette of sword like leaves, eventually forming a short trunk as the plant gets older. As it can take 28 - 55 years to flower, the seeds are rarely offered for sale.

Hardy in Zones 6 to 10, it is easy to grow from seed and will quickly establish itself. If grown in well drained soil, it will tolerate several degrees of frost and withstand being covered with snow. It can also be grown in a pot or container, being potted on into larger pots as required. Full instructions for germination can be found here.
