The biggest plants in the world.

  • The world’s largest flower is Rafflesia Arnoldi, which is native to Indonesia and has no leaves, stems or roots. It grows on the ground and can reach up to 1 meter (39 inches) in diameter with a weight of 18 kg (40 pounds).
  • The world’s tallest tree is Hyperion, a coastal redwood that stands 115 m (377 ft) tall and was measured at 115.55 m (379 ft) by Dr. Steve Sillett’s team at Redwood National Park in September 2008.[1] Before its discovery, Hyperion was thought to be the second-tallest coast redwood after Stratosphere Giant.[2][3][4]
  • The largest plant by area is Pando,[5] an aspen grove in Utah which covers 106 hectares (262 acres)[6], making it one of Earth’s most massive organisms by size alone. Some parts of Pando are estimated to be 80,000 years old[7].
