This plant is flowering now the huge flower spike is amazing removal from the outback is monitored and limited ... the plant you are looking at is ~100YO

That's an interesting plant. We have something similar in Arizona called an Aguave (sp) or Century plant. It also puts up a stalk with flowers or leaves, once a year. Jim

This is a nice plant, John. In Mexico there are some plants similar, but they are more likely to cactus.

It is incredible the age of this small plant

Nice and informative pic. I have seen a variety of cactus in India along foothills, in which the leaves remain at the bottom but the flower is atop a stem shooting several meters up, very similar to this. Thanks for sharing.
