Puya berteroniana, the Blue Puya, is one of the largest genera in the Pineapple Family, Bromeliaceae. Most of its species are concentrated along the Andes mountain range of South America, some at altitudes up to nearly 5000 metres. Very few Puya species have become popular in cultivation. It can reach 6-10 feet tall. The Blue Puya shows full beauty of colour and form in every way and appears to be from another world.
