Puya spathacea (?) blooming

This poor puya happens to be in a fairly exposed spot...ie-where unmonitored little brats stomp on it and break off pieces of the inflorescence. I guess its not vicious enough with its teeth! But it has still managed to flower. It was divided from a clump that is in a much more shaded area and we weren't even sure it was a puya until now. Although beat up, does anyone concur or disagree with my guess that its a puya spathacea?

Andy,

I don't grow any Puyas but it looks to me like the photo on FCBS and there are are couple of returns under Google images that look similar.

Hi Andy - I don't grow Puyas either but I can still admire your plant's flower colour, I find it most unusual and attractive.

All the best, Nev.
