Century Plants look like giant asparagus and are members of the aspargus family.
Their name is derived because they are said to bloom,
once a century,
and then die.
We have at least a hundred or more at The Holler.
When they bloom,
the stalks are well over 20 feet tall.
They are magnets for pollinators,
especially bees and hummingbirds.
The hummingbirds fight relentlessly for control over the massive stalks.
Our century plants bloom about every ten years and reproduce prodigiously via underground root systems.
Cheers to you from The Holler Centurions~
