Exotic plant flowers once in its lifetime

3 posts in this topic

For horticulturists it is a moment of great beauty tinged with even greater sadness. An exotic plant that flowers once in its lifetime before dying has bloomed.

The spiky plant had shown no signs of blossoming for 11 years but has now burst into an array of turquoise petals with orange anthers - on what is expected to be the hottest day of the year.

The bright colour combination is extremely rare to see in the plant world and is never seen on a plant native to the UK.

I had an aloe vera plant that dropped lots of buds years ago. I planted a few of them to grow into new plants, then one year every single ones of them and the parent plant all grew tall flower stocks at the exact same time. That was pretty cool.

Wow , wonder if it has a smell or any medicinal qualities. Very impressive in height and size , really unusual looking.
