One of our iconic and long-lived Talipot Palm has started its flowering cycle. It will die completely in the next 15-18 months. This palm, Corypha umbraculifera, is well known to grow for 30-80 years.  At some point in that time frame the palm will mature, flower and then die. During the flowering course, the palm will produce the largest and most spectacular inflorescence in the plant world, producing as many as 200,000 flowers, which in turn will set several thousand single-seeded fruits in about a year. The well-branched inflorescence will grow 20-25 feet tall in the next 3-4 months, and when mature it will shed its white flowers. The fruits are round and the size of a golf ball. Beware of the falling fronds, flowers and fruits as the palm slowly dies.
