Example text

3–3v (40–100 cm) tall, branched in the upper fourth, densely pubescent. Basal leaves are not present at flowering. 6w (1–4 cm) long, usually twisted on axis, tip acute, margins entire, surfaces pubescent. Flowers grow 2–4 per cluster at ends of the stem and branches, forming a roughly flat-topped inflorescence. The bracts at bases of flowering heads are distinctly green-tipped. 25w (3–6 mm) long; the 6–11 disc flowers are dull white. Twistleaf White-topped Aster differs from other white-topped asters by its greater height and short, twisted leaves; at first glance it may remind you of a Eupatorium.

Dandelions and hawkweeds have heads composed solely of ray flowers. See fig. 2. Awn A short to long, usually needlelike extension. An awned leaf has a sharp projection from the leaf tip. Awns can occur on many plant parts, such as bracts, sepals, petals, grass fruits, grass scales, and sedge scales. Axil Junction of a leaf and stem. In many plants, flower stalks originate from the junctions of leaves and stem. Bean family flowers For a description of a typical flower, see Pea-shaped. Bipinnate Twice pinnate; referring to a pinnate leaf that is again pinnately divided.

Wiregrass is usually dense and carries relatively cool-burning fires through the community. As with Turkey Oak Scrub, many of the member plants are highly adapted to fire; some such as Wiregrass will not flower or fruit without it. Within just a few weeks after a winter or spring fire, there is a burst of plant growth from dormant seeds and rhizomes, soon followed by flowering, which continues through fall. Next season’s display is less spectacular, and each subsequent year produces fewer flowering plants until fire occurs again.
