Puya Coerulea var Violacea. Bromeliad.

The Puya Coerulea var Violacea is an amazing plant and rarely available. Rosettes of narrow, tapering leaves are silvery-grey in colour with small teeth along their margins. In spring, when mature enough, narrow and tubular deep violet coloured flowers with prominent yellow stamens appear. These are held above the rosettes on a dramatic branching upright reddish coloured flower stalk. This very exotic plant will eventually form offsets and reach a height of around 1.5m. Definitely one for the collectors this unique plant is great for large containers, coastal gardens, exotic gardens and city gardens alike, it's striking silhouette making it a wonderful architectural addition.
Will need protection in severe winters.
