Wordless Wednesday: Century Plant

The century plant is so nicknamed because supposedly, after a hundred years, it grows an incredibly tall flower spike (with a spectacularly ugly bloom), and then it dies.

It looks like a poor imitation of broccoli.

Its real name is agave americana, and it actually only lives ten to thirty years.

Oops, I broke the first rule of Wordless Wednesday by writing way too many words.

I’m not deleting them.
