Puya

Puya alpestris

Description:

An amazing bromeliad, about 1.5 meters high, with blue flowers. I think it is a Puya, but the only one I find like this is Puya berteroniana and the inflorescence is not quiet like this one.

Habitat:

Urban

Estoy casi seguro de que es Puya ... y si tiene híbridos naturales, mejor la dejo como Puya sp. !!! Gracias Daniela.

¡Hermosa!. Sí, es del género Puya. Difícil de determinar, leí que este género tiene híbridos naturales.
