This one has actually been flowering prolifically since just before the start of winter, and still going strong. Probably a lot of logic in that. No heavy rain to disrupt pollination. When the seeds ripen the wet season floods disperse them.

It has the well deserved name of Lasia spinosa. There's no rocket science in working out where the "spinosa" comes from. The stems and backs of the leaves are covered in sharp rigid spines. It's a literal pain working around the plant. But it's a beauty.
