Puya mirabilis

In the ground here for over a decade. Blooms every year. Took two consecutive nights of 18F last winter with a bit of leaf burn. Recovered rapidly and is now blooming on schedule.

I love Puya!
My first Puya to flower from seed is this P. mirabilis that just bloomed for the first time last week (sown in 2013):

Wow, congratulations! I think Puya mirabilis has such nice foliage, and the flowers are a beautiful shade of alien green. You're very patient to grow this from seed. 👽 :U
