Flowering of the Puya

When:
Every day until Thu 30 Nov 2017
Details:
The Beach
TBC end Oct until end Nov

One of our most popular events at the Garden in Spring is the flowering of the Puya which is uniquely blue. The Puya is a genus of the botanical family Bromeliaceae, subfamily Pitcairnioideae. These terrestrial plants are native to the Andes Mountains of South America and southern Central America. The ones you will see in our Garden are wild collected from Chile. Many of the species are monocarpic, with the parent plant dying after one flower and seed production event. We are selling them in the Visitors Centre this Oct/Nov.
Location:
The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah
