Century Plant


Another Agave blooms and dies, and the press takes notice. This time in South Carolina. I should probably have an entire separate category for these news items, they’re so common. At least this one includes a photo.

Impressive.

Brenda Turner stands with her 20-year old Century Cactus in the backyard of her West Marion home. Recently, Turner’s plant began sprouting the spike filled with buds. Once the plant blooms, it will die.

I wonder why this is news? I mean, I know why I post it – it has a photo, and it has the spectacle of a “legitimate” newspaper writing about a single succulent in someone’s backyard, but why does the newspaper publish it? Maybe this is the very cause of their impending demise.

Anyway, congrats to Brenda for getting into her local paper with a dying plant.
