Flower colour & season
DescriptionE. Crassipes is a free-floating aquatic macrophyte growing generally to 0.5M in height but to nearly 1 metre in height in some southeast asian locations (gopal 1987, in batcher undated). E. Crassipes may form dense floating mats. Its leaves are thick, waxy, rounded, and glossy and rise well above the water surface on stalks. They are broadly ovate to circular, 10-20cm in diameter, with gently incurved, often undulate sides. Leaf veins are dense, numerous, fine and longitudinal. Leaf stalks are bulbous and spongy. The stalk is erect, to 50cm long, and carries at the top a single spike of 8-15 showy flowers. The flowers have six petals, purplish blue or lavender to pinkish, the uppermost petal with a yellow, blue-bordered central splotch.
