Related to the Agave, and with a similar habit (though less spiny!), the rosette grows for several (many) years, forming a trunk, then, when it's in the mood, it produces a giant flower spike up to 40 foot tall. While you wait, this makes an excellent plant for a large pot or planted in well-drained soil in a sunny border.
