WANTED: Puya alpestris or berteroniana
Puya are the primary plants I'm looking for however:
I'm looking for terrestrial bromeliads that can tolerate the extreme and harsh conditions of a desert AND will add color or unusual form to my 1 acre garden. I can provide sun or shade, lots of space, but I can't alter the weather here. Summers can be a scorching 115 F and winters can see 2-3 nights at 30 F (though I can give some protection); rain is evenly distributed between winter & summer - approx. 12 in. I try not to supplement with additional water.
Any ideas or offers will be considered.
Have Jojoba seeds, Cassia (Feathery, Green, Silver) seeds...willing to look around my garden for other cacti/succulents. I have no bromeliads to exchange at this time.
