Giant agave flower spike ready to open

Agave salmiana x asperrima flower spike ready to openThe flower spike on our giant Agave salmiana x asperrima is timed perfectly for our Summer Open Nursery and Garden.  We measured the spike on this 15 year old monster this morning at a whopping 29′ tall.  The actually opening of the flowers should start around Friday and will continue for several weeks.  We hope you’ll drop by for a visit during open house and take the opportunity to marvel at this wonder of nature.
