Wow, and here I am impressed when my yucca plants throw up a 6' stalk. Where the hell does the biomass for that thing come from?
Nice looking Azalea, Varis. We can't grow them in this part of Ohio. The soil is too alkaline and we have to add lots and lots of acid. They still do not do well. I am originally from PA and the soil there was very acidic. Azalea, Rhododendron and laurel grew like crazy. Probably why the Mountain Laurel is the State flower.
Mezcal?About 6 weeks ago our Agave started sprouting a bloom. My understanding is they bloom once and die and that this one was planted somewhere around 2003, if the neighbors memories are correct. It was standing straight until 3 days ago when it started listing slightly away, luckily, from the house. We're expecting it to get windy this afternoon and at the rate it's leaning I don't expect it to stand for much longer. I tied a rope to it to hopefully guide it away from the flag pole and driveway when it does go. Absolutely no clue how much it weighs but the base of the stalk is about 8" across and feels like solid wood. I'm estimating somewhere between 25 and 30 feet tall. The flag pole is 14' tall for reference. News at 11:00.....
