The female flowers have a superior ovary and five contorted petals loosely connected at the base.:235 Male and female flowers are borne in the leaf axils, and the males are multi flowered dichasia, and the female flowers are in few-flowered dichasia. The pollen grains are elongated and approximately 35 microns in length. The flowers are sweet-scented, open at night, and wind- or insect-pollinated.
