BERKELEY (KGO) --A rare plant at the UC Botanical Garden is in the process of producing a giant bloom that could shoot 30 feet high and feature up to 30,000 flowers.
The plant is called a Puya Raimondii, and it's only bloomed twice before while in captivity.
The 24-year-old plant is nestled in Strawberry Canyon above UC Berkeley.
The Puya blooms so rarely that there's hardly any literature written about it.
Visitors can tour the garden for a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of this unique and extraordinary plant.
