@pussiette , beautiful... is that the type like we have in the US a century plant blooms once in a lifetime ?

The century plant, Agave americana, is monocarpic, meaning it will bloom once in its lifetime. That bloom may not appear for 10, 20 or more years, depending on the climate. Many species in the genus Agave flower just once, although there are a few that are repeat bloomers.
