Q.Our Agave Is Flowering With A Spike About 15ft High. Is This Rare In The UK
We put it in or garden about 10 years ago. We noticed 6-7 weeks ago that something was happening and it has just grown and grown. Is it of any interest do you think to other keen gardeners?

Every source I consulted mentioned its flowering, so I don't think it is unusual except for the fact that many people may not still have their agave plant after 7 to 20 years, the time it takes to flower. So, it is newsworthy when one does bloom.
Be sure to collect any offshoots produced during flowering as the main plant dies after flowering.
