Artist's Description

The century plant (Agave americana) actually only lives for 10-30 years. Finally, it puts up a long flower spike (up to 30 feet high) and the whole plant then dies off. The flowers are borne on many side-branches of the main stem. Once the plant dies, many small plants start to grow around it, from the roots.

My parents had one growing for some years, and this is a drawing of the falling flower-spike, with its branches and the remains of the flower-heads, with digital enhancement. The pattern in the foreground is of plant cells from a pencil study drawn in a botany lab.
