What’s in Bloom?

Pulgue Agave - Agave salmiana


In the Arid Dome of the Conservatory, this 50 year old Pulque Agave displays its 15 foot tall inflorescence of small yellow flowers.  Once its blooming period ends, which is approaching quickly, the plant will die, but two small "pups" are emerging from the mother plant's base to continue the legacy.
