The misnamed century plant doesn't really live for 100 years. It typically lives only 10 to 30 years. It has a green base that looks similar to an aloe plant. The leaves can be up to six feet long and they have spines on the end that is very sharp and can pierce to the bone. When it flowers, the spike with big yellow flowers may reach up to 26 ft in height. Its name likely derives from its nature of flowering only once at the end of its long life. The plant dies after flowering, but produces suckers or shoots from the base, which continue its growth as new plants.
If everyone would look for that uniqueness
then we would have a very colorful world.
We are all born originals -
Why is it so many of us die as copies.
