yucca plants in her yard. One day a few months ago, she noticed that one of them was changing. It was starting to grow a stalk in the middle of itself (a stalk like 'Jack in the Beanstalk').
As the stalk grew higher the plant began to die at the bottom. Ginny found it on Google and it said the plant is a "century plant". It takes all it's energy to grow the stalk and kills itself in the process.
One of the new plants at the bottom of the main plant will take it's place. We are amazed to watch the process as it happens.
When the stalk stopped growing in height, it started to make some blooms at the top. Here's what it looks like now.
