Agave Flowers

This isn't one of my plants; the specimen is situated in the same housing estate where I live. In recent years, the landscaping industry in Malaysia has been using a lot of Agaves as hardy plants in landscapes. In the past couple of years, I've seen many Agaves flower. Of course, they will then die. All the better for the landscaping industry -- more business .

The specimen in full bloom in May 2001. It reaches all the way up to the power cables running overhead.

Closer shots of the plant and the flower stalk. Agaves bloom for a long time, since it is giving its all for the flowers and the seeds. As of early 2002, the plant has almost withered.
