Commonly known as Turquoise Puya, Puya berteroniana (Poales - Bromeliaceae) is a terrestrial bromeliad endemic to Chile.
Each spring, this bromeliad sends up a massive flower stalk 6 feet tall and over a foot wide, covered with the most amazing flowers. The 2-inch blossoms are emerald-turquoise, and have bright orange anthers that contrast beautifully with the petals. Turquoise is an extremely rare color in the plant world, and it’s even rarer to be combined with orange. The large stature and riveting coloration of the Puya gives it a presence that is truly awe-inspiring [source].
