'Once in a Century' Plant to Bloom in Bay County

CALLAWAY, Fla. - An enormous American Agave plant, known as the 'Once in a Century Plant', is ready to bloom here in Bay County.

Joe Melvin planted a small seed outside of his Callaway home about 28 years ago. 

Century plants usually grow between 10 and 30 feet, but this gigantic plant is now about 35 feet tall. 

The flowering species will only bloom once and then die. 

This one is expected to bloom in the next couple of weeks.
