Century Plant (agave)

A few weeks ago we had some guests staying who commented on the flower on our Century Pant. This plant is used in the production of Tequila and Tong and I have owned them for 15 years. I had noticed the spike however the gentleman staying informed me that these plants only flower once at the end of their life and then they die! Apparently we are in for quite a show but the result will be devastating as we have grown to love and cherish them. Enjoy these...
