Worlds Largest Flower


In February 2002, an environmental organization discovered what could be one of the world’s largest flowers in the 5,511-hectare Sibalom National Park in Antique province.
Measuring about 22 inches in diameter, the endangered flower, locally named as “Uruy”, (Rafflesia sp.) has no stem and leaves.
