  1. corypha

    Corypha is a genus of flowering plants in the palm family that are native to India, Malaysia, Southeast Asia, and the Philippines. They are noted for their large, fan-shaped leaves and their massive flowering structure, which produces a huge number of small flowers. This spectacular floral display is so taxing on the plant that it usually dies afterwards. The most well-known species within this genus is probably the Corypha umbraculifera, or the Talipot palm.
