Artist's Description

AGAVE AMERICANA, or “Century Plant”
Texas native
Austin, Texas, USA

From Wikipedia:

“Agave americana, common names century plant, maguey or American aloe,4 is a species of flowering plant in the family Agavaceae, originally native to Mexico, Arizona and Texas but cultivated worldwide as an ornamental plant.”

See more at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agave_americana

This is the fruit at the top of the Century Plant bloom stalk. It seems relatively undisturbed. Through processing and distillation, Mezcal and Tequila are made from Agaves, but Tequila is made from the Blue Agave. Agave nectar also comes from this plant. Too much Tequila will knock you on the floor! Just so’s you know…. What is distilled from the Agave has a high alcohol content. Do not try this at home! :P

This Century Plant bloom stalk is VERY tall. The tree in the background is a tall one, so this bloom stalk is incredible. It is so heavy that it has tilted and is leaning on the tree. It has tilted the whole Century plan at its base too. Or could it be someone or someTHING has climbed it? You can see where the telephone line runs in the background, which should give you a good idea of how tall the stalk is.
