Century plants in bloom

By Teresa Villarreal

The century plant, also known as Agave Americana, is monocarpic, meaning it will bloom once in its lifetime.

The name “century plant” comes from the fact that this slowgrowing plant takes years to flower. It was once believed that this plant only bloomed once every one hundred years.

According to the University of Michigan’s Matthaei Botanical Gardens, American agave plants usually flower after about 10 to 30 years as they grow to full maturity, depending on its climate, but they have record of a century plant taking 80 years to bloom before dying.
