Agave Salmiana in Flower

In my garden,at the southern edge of London, I have an agave salmiana planted out since 1992. It has now grown to immense proportions and a week or so ago 
showed the first sign of flowering. In habitat the flower stalk of salmiana can reach 8 metres, what will happen in Worcester Park we''ll have to wait and see.
After 1 week After 2 weeks After 1 month The plant is 2m (6ft 6in) high, the flower stalk is 1.52m (5ft) high and 20cms (8in) across at it's base
