Agave - Sedona, Arizona

Clinging to the red rocks of Sedona, the agave plant also known as a "century plant" grows in abundance. The plant is given this name because it is known to only bloom once in a century. The plant however, usually only lives to about 25 years. Despite the plant rarely living up to its name, it does only bloom once in its lifetime with a stalk that protrudes out from the center about 15 feet high with clusters of flowers at the top. Shortly after blooming the plant will die and fall over.
