My century plants, found on the road side about half dead, have decided they've had enough and it's time to bloom....
Here's a slideshow of the growth.
The stalks (called masts) were amazing. The tip here looks like a little tiki guy.
The flowers were less than impressive after all that work.
There she is - Full Bloom.
The seed pods are falling everywhere. It'll be a mess to clean up.
And now the plant dies...
