#7 Century Plant



These are behind the tire store off the alley behind us. These kinds of plants send up tall shoots of white flowers, but certainly not every year, nor even every decade. In southern New Mexico where there are fields of them (or desertscapes full of them--nobody planted them there), there are always some in that state, but I might never see these two do anything. I think that's why they call them "century plants." Very slow cycle.

Sandra, it's so amazing seeing plants from another part of the country! Thanks for sharing.
