HOUSTON — Everything is bigger in Texas, including the vegetables.

A century plant, related to the regular asparagus we get at the grocery store, is becoming a spectacle in Houston.

It’s about two stories tall and is still growing.

This kind of plant only lives for about 30 years.

It only produces flowers once and then it dies.

This giant plant only has a few weeks left before its big goodbye.
