Every variety of racemose and paniculate inflorescence obtains, and the number of spikelets composing those of the large kinds is often immense.
Pretty liliaceous plants, with simple conspicuously longitudinal-ribbed leaves, the racemose flowers funnel-shaped and deflexed.
Bulbous plants with a terminal racemose inflorescence; the anthers open introrsely and the capsule is loculicidal.
Again, there may be a raceme of capitula, that is, a group of capitula disposed in a racemose manner, as in Petasites, a raceme of umbels, as in ivy, and so on, all the forms of inflorescence being indefinite in disposition.
In the privet (Ligustrum vulgare) there are numerous racemes of dichasia arranged in a racemose manner along an axis; the whole inflorescence thus has an appearance not unlike a bunch of grapes, and has been called a thyrsus.
In the bell-flower (Campanula) there is a racemose uniparous cyme.
