Good morning –
We purchased the plant next to my son in this photo from you about 2+ years ago.
I cannot recall the name of it – but note it is now producing a giant shoot or blossom that is about 10 feet tall.
What can you tell me about this – I have heard that the plant will die once this shoot blooms?
Thank you for your time –
That is a Dasylirion wheeleri, known as the Desert Spoon, from Northern Mexico. They do not die after blooming – you’re thinking of the Agaves – same Plant Family, but different plants!
The giant bloom stalk will produce lots of flowers which will be very attractive to the bees.
