Interesting title regarding very tall plants

My wife was driving around the school where she teaches one day and saw a pretty amazing plant, and she couldn't wait to show me.

This thing is crazy! It looks fake, but it's the real deal. I knocked on the door to see if they minded us getting a picture of it, and the lady (who turned out to be very nice) gave us the full rundown of it. They picked it up out in West Texas...somewhere...and it has just taken off. It's either Agave or a Century Plant...which look like they are practically the same thing.

At the time of this picture, it was about 18 - 20 feet tall, and should be blooming in a few weeks.

Very interesting plant!

Hey, I didn't know that your wife teaches! What does she teach?

My wife is hoping to fly back to Austin sometime this summer to take her certification test for Texas (she let it lapse). She wants to get back to teaching.

She teaches the two-year-old class at a Mother's Day Out place, but this is her last year.

We have one of those crazy tree/plants on our street. I guess it's a good way to keep the kids from climbing your tree.
