This plant sent up a tall bloom stalk in the past month. The base of the plant is about 8-9 feet wide but it is hard to see as it is among a bunch of brush on the hillside. The bloom stalk is about 25+ feet tall. At first I thought it was another agave, but the blooms were different than the other agave's. After some research I believe this is Furcraea foetida, which is a close relative of the agave. It is grown for it's hemp fiber.
|This is looking out the kitchen window and down. You can see the top of Furcrae foetida, but not the base.|
