    Container plant to bring indoors during winter! Zone 8b-11. The Turquoise Puya grows in soil, and can be treated much like a cactus or succulent. Mature plants are said to survive temperatures down to 18-20 degrees F (-7C) if kept relatively dry.

    Puya Berteroniana Turqoiuse Blue is a very rare and interesting plant each spring, this Pineapple relative with a massive flower stalk 6 feet tall & over a foot wide, with the most amazing flowers. Turquoise is an extremely rare color in the plant world, and it's even rarer to be combined with orange. Hardy from zones 8-11 colder areas can plant in container and keep warm for winter.
