Century Plant


This picture is of Virginia Causey’s century plant. Century plants take an average of 15 years to flower. This one is approximately 20 years old. The large stalk is about 30 feet in heights and the plant has yellow flowers. This stage of growth takes about four months. The blooms will remain on the plant for about a month before the stalk begins to wither and die, killing off the rest of the plant with it. This picture is of Virginia Causey’s century plant.
