A blooming agave is a sight to see. When the blooming sprout first occurred it appeared to be a giant asparagus spear, at least 15 feet high. Now it has opened up and looks like a weird bonsai pine tree. The bees are buzzing around the yellow flowers while the agave fronds have collapsed. The parent plant was at least 6 feet tall and 10 feet wide. My botanical guide assures me that new plantlets will appear at a later date. Linked to Skywatch Friday.
