Puya Raimondi (Puya raimondii) is an endemic species of the zone altoandina of Peru and Bolivia, found at an altitude of 3200 - 4800 m. It is not only the largest of the Puya species, but also the largest Bromeliad. It can reach 3 m tall in vegetative growth, with a flower spike 9-10 m tall. It reportedly can live over 100 years. Like most Bromeliads, it dies soon after flowering. It is considered to be an endangered species.
