it´s a flower, not a tree
the Agave belongs to the family of Asparagaceae - says Wikipedia
I used to live in Arizona and saw these frequently. They are one of the deserts wonders.
Wow monkey mind!! That is an interesting fact that Agave is a flower and not a tree!!
that thing, that looks like a tree, is the actual inflorescence. It can be to 12 m high. I was told, that these plants blossom once a decade, or more years.
Oh, and I did not know, that agava is a flower. That's odd.
