Corypha umbraculifera

Corypha umbraculifera, better known as the “Talipot palm,” is the largest flowering plant with branched inflorescence. This simply means that, instead of budding off a single stalk, the flowers of the Talipot bud from tiny branches attached to the main stalk.

This flowering inflorescence is the largest of any plant in the world, sometimes growing more than 25 feet in length.
