Puya berteroana or Turquoise Puya is a terrestrial Bromeliad from the mountains of Chile. It forms a rosette of silvery-green leaves about 3-4 feet tall and wide. Over the years, it forms a large colony of pups. The leaves are spiny, but the flower stalks themselves are soft, and the blossoms are silky-smooth. Birds like to sit on the outward-pointing tips and drink the nectar out of the blooms.
