WEB EXCLUSIVE: Century plant finally blooms after 35 years

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - If a plant doesn't grow, there might be something wrong with it, unless it is a century plant.

Rona Wilkes, 91, has been watching her century plant grow for the past 35 years but has never seen it bloom until now. She says the stalk is more than eight feet high and watching it grow has been exciting.

"I couldn't wait to get up each morning and see what happened overnight. It is amazing. It is almost like a miracle the way the plant has grown," said Wilkes.

Wilkes says she has not done anything special for the plant. She has just watered and fertilized it with her other plants.
