Free Printable Botanical: Agave Americana by H.C. Andrews
An antique botanical illustration by Henry Charles Andrews depicting the Agave americana, also commonly known as the century plant. Despite its name, the plant typically lives only up to 30 years. The plant flowers but once in its lifetime, producing a magnificent stalk that can reach 15-30 feet in height before it dies. For an interesting read on flowering agaves, check out this article by Gardening Gone Wild.
