Unearthly-looking Sapphire Tower (Puya alpestris)
Now In Bloom at San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas

This South American wonder will continue to flower for several weeks. Characterized by unearthly, metallic-looking, deep turquoise blooms, that are punctuated by bright orange anthers, the Puya alpestris, commonly known as the Sapphire Tower, looks like nothing else in the plant world.

This striking flower that often causes visitors to say ‘Is this REAL?’ is now in bloom at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas. A native plant of South America, this Chilean species is a member of the pineapple family, with flowers measuring 2” across with a number of them blooming up an 18” spike (or tower) over a 2-3 week time frame.
