Can I have an ID on these two please.
The first I received seed marked Puya Coerulea but going by the FCBS it is not this.

The flower is similar to  mirabilis but hasn't got the black outer leaves

No idea what this one is.

Kayleen, some interesting plants there but as far as a ID is concerned Im stumped!, 1st plant looks to be a Puya hybrid, looking on the FCBS Puya coerulea has a much taller flower stem. With the 2nd some bigeneric combo, at a very outside guess - Bilbergeria x Aechmea ?, certainly has a very strange flower.

Best bet is to go back to your source for both with these images to see if they can offer some resolution, certainly would be interesting to know.


Cheers John

Thanks John. I will ask around about the Puya.
The other one is Hohenbergia Maria Valentina. I would love to get hold of the red flowering one Stellata.

Hi everyone.

Sorry Kayleen, count me out, they're way out of my league and I wouldn't have a clue. Did the see come from a seed bank? If so, send them a pic and see if someone there can ID it for you.   

All the best, Nev.

Nev the seed came from our seed bank at BSQ. I will ask at the next meeting.

The other plant isn't seed grown. The name tag was in the pot but the writing had worn off.
They have the tiniest little blue flowers. I will see if I can get a pic tomorrow if any are open.
