Massive Queen of the Andes (puya raimondii)

This largest and most magnificent of all Bromeliads is native to the barren highlands of the Andes in Bolivia and Peru between 3200 and 4800 m. It forms a giant rosette of stiff, broad leaves atop a stout trunk to 7 feet tall. The remarkable flower spike appears after 80 or more years of vegetative growth and can reach about 25 feet tall. It adapts relatively well to warm temperate climates without extremes of heat or cold in USDA Zones 9 and 10.
