A new flower for us.

on

We had a new flower in our garden recently.  We have many different succulents which had been planted by the previous owners.  In the back garden there were several that just look like a cross between a yucca and agave.

There has been no flower in the years that we have been here but to our surprise we watched with anticipation when a stem was produced on one of the plants.

After watching this stem increase in height over a couple of weeks it eventually produced an amazing flower.

The flower lasted for quite some time and it resembled lots of tulips on a stalk.  My husband did some research in the internet and apparently the plant only produces a flower once.  That is it.

Thought it was possibly agave parviflora but it isn’t.  More likely agave filifera according to the written description but ours doesn’t look like the picture.
