More Tropic Florida weirdness. This looks like something from the Far Side cartoons to me. I posted a photo of the bud in mid August when this Agave americana started sending up a flower stalk:
Two and one half months later – the flower stalk is over seven feet tall and has these wonderful chartreuse flowers.
I am guessing these are florets? The flowers start out looking like rectangular budded broccoli and then bloom.
I am waiting to see what this plant might do next.
Wow! Those tall stalks are really dramatic. Do they need to be in a dry environment?
Dramatic is a good description, I do not live in a dry environment but the soil drains freely (sugar sand, for the most part) I have not seen another one of these around here – an old friend from landscape school grew it and gave it to me.

I love your dramatic broccoli plant. A real touch of drama.
I do, too. It is starting to lean. I am waiting on the seed heads.
