Puya raimondii (Queen of the Andes)

300 (450)cm ø, Queen of the Andes is native of Peru and adjacent areas and makes the tallest inflorescence of all plants, eventually reaching up to 8m in height. It is an extremely rarely seen plant in cultivation and makes a huge, short stemmed and unbranched leaf rosette before the impressive inflorescence is produced with several thousand pale yellow flowers after some 40 to 80 years (!) in habitat. However, cultivated plants will reach flowering size much earlier after some 20 to 35 years "only" under appropiate growing conditions. The entire plant will gradually die down after setting seed, and propagation is by seeds only. Keep slow growing plants slightly drier in winter at a minimum of some 10°C and in full sun throughout the year. Seeds are rarely available and only few packages are in stock. Tested viability of our seed stock is above 80% under optimal sowing conditions.
10 seeds per package.
