Cunjevoi flower at Peacehaven

Alocasia brisbanensis
As its plants mature, Peacehaven Botanic Park at Highfields is getting to be a great place to see the annual cycles of our local native plants.

Here’s a pristine flowerhead, which appeared last week on one of the young cunjevoi plants.
To find it, take the rainforest path and look for plants with large green “elephant ear” leaves.
