Giant Water Lilies
Enjoy this amazing water lilies video featuring David Attenborough. Water lily plants in the Amazon produce giant flowers and leaves that stretch out six feet across the water, absorbing light from the sun and making it difficult for other plants to live below the surface. Their edges are turned up to fight for position and they feature nasty spines on the underside to prevent fish from eating them. As well as having giant leaves, these plants also have giant flowers which grow to around a foot in length.
