Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm)

Flowering Palm
Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm)

These feather-like branches are so magnificent, like the crowning of a tree before it dies.


Corypha umbraculifera (Talipot palm) is native to southern India (Malabar Coast) and Sri Lanka.


This one of the largest palms in the world can reached heights of up to 25 m, with stems up to 1.3 m in diameter.

This fan palm (Arecaceae tribe Corypheae) has large palmate leaves up to 5 m in diameter, with a petiole up to 4 m, and 100 over leaflets.

Talipot palm bears the largest inflorescence of any plant, 6-8 m long, consisting of one to several million small flowers borne on a branched stalk that forms at the top of the trunk.

The Talipot palm is monocarpic, flowering only once, when it is 30 to 80 years old. It takes about a year for the fruit to mature, producing thousands of round yellow-green fruit 3-4 cm diameter, containing a single seed.

The plant dies after fruiting.
