Peru and Bolivia:

In which country would you find these amazing plants?

The World’s Largest Bromeliad in Peru and Bolivia.
 
With over 40 genera and 3,000 species, bromeliads come in a vast array of sizes, shapes and colors. They range in size from the tiny Spanish moss to the gigantic Puya ramondii. The Puya ramondii, also know as the “Queen of the Andes”, is the largest bromeliad and has one of the world’s largest inflorescence.
 
The foliage can reach 10 feet in height, often growing up to 9 feet in width, with inflorescence reaching 30 feet tall.
 
Puya ramondii is native to the highlands of the Andes in Peru and Bolivia. They enjoy the cool climates and rocky topography found around 13,000 feet. But they can be cultivated in warmer climate as well. They grow in communities called rodales and will generally confine themselves to one specific area on a mountain even though the surrounding terrain appears to be exactly the same.
