The Most Amazing Flower in the World
This Agave Century Plant has the most amazing flower in the world. I've been photographing the initial bloom spike since early June. The plant takes about 15-20 years to finally put out a flower. Because so much of the plant's energy goes into this amazing bloom, the plant dies afterward. But in nature's amazing way there are new daughter plants spreading from the original to keep the species going.
