Puya alpestris is the scientific name for this plant. It is in the bromeliad family, so it is related to pineapple. It is native to Chile. Just thought you might want to know. And, yes, it is very unusually colored. Don't believe I have ever seen this color in a flower before.

Bryan Murahashi05-Jun-2006 15:20

I like the texture on the leaves too. And you're right. It's turquoise. Very unusual.
