      Unlike the tree-dwelling Bromeliads, Puya has fully-functional roots and grows in soil, much like a cactus or succulent. It is hardy in zones 8b-11.

    Pink Puya. Full of color! The Pink Puya (Puya dyckioides) is a beautiful, rare Pineapple relative from Argentina that's rarely seen in cultivation. Not only do the flowers have a gorgeous color combination, but the colors deepen as the cluster matures!

This lovely foliage plant is easy to grow and propagate; simply snip off a leaf or the end of a shoot and pot it in barely moist soil. Ghost plant likes a bright spot and the stems can grow a foot or more long.

    Zebra Cactus - This plant will grow well in full sun and it requires very little water. Plants are 6" tall and will grow babies around the base of the mother plant. They produce small white flowers with purple pin stripes on a long outreaching stem.

    Of all the succulents I grow, ghost plants are among the easiest and most remarkable. They are true survivors. Damaged stem? No problem. No water? The plant hunkers down and looks pretty much the same for months. Frost? It’s gotten down to 17 degrees in my garden, and the graptopetalums were fine

    I, just today, purchased a Black Onyx Helleborus plant. Am so excited to start my shade garden in the back for this fall.
