Century blooms



These two towering Century plants, located at the intersection of East Davilla and Rice Streets in Rockdale, are a sight to see as they tower between 20-25 feet in the air. Although these plants are named for a 100 year period, they only live 10-30 years depending on the climate. Blooms only appear at the end of the plant’s life cycle and last up to a month.
