The Rosaceae is a very large plant family that includes the apples, plums, cherries, and roses (St-Pierre, 1991). There are at least 10 species of Saskatoon berries and it is hard to tell them apart. The morphology of the shrub is highly variable and can have different factors based on age, location, and underground stem location. It usually grows to shrub size and can be differentiated by the leaves, the flowers, and berries that grow on it (Brooke, 1988). • Leaves/Buds: The leaves are an oval-shaped and about 1-2 inches long and about ¾-1/12 inches wide.
As is frequently the case with common names, the term nettle is often used for plants that aren't nettles at all. In the Midwest, the plant known as Red Dead-Nettle is actually a member of the Mint Family and the Horse Nettle (which is poisonous) is actually a Nightshade (Seymour, 1997). The true nettles belong to the Urticaceae, also known as the Nettle Family. The Nettle Family is found worldwide and consists of about 45 genera and 700-1000 species. Most of the species are tropical and herbaceous (Walters and Keil, 1996).
Cones on the American Larch range about 5"-8" long. Each section of the pine cone usually produces 2 winged seeds, a common trait among many Pennsylvania pines (Cooks Forest, 2013). Each of these Pennsylvania evergreen species provides a variety of resources unique to their own species. Whether it be producing timbe... ... middle of paper ... ...ough genetic variability is generally a good quality, sometimes plant characteristics that are considered favorable by commercial propagators can be lost through genetic mutation during sexual reproduction of seed propagation. Also, sexual propagation through seeds is not always feasible for commercial propagators because of the length of time from germination until you have a fully developed plant (Horticulture, 2014).
The Life of a Sanguinaria Canadensis The Sanguinaria is a beautiful wildflower that can be found in many places throughout North America. This popular flower is a member of the poppy family, and is the only member of its genus, it falls under the flowering plants division, it is a part of the plants kingdom, it is in the class of dicotyledons, and it is also a perennial herb that is produced from an underground stem. Sanguinaria canadensis L. is the scientific name of this flower, and it is most commonly called a Bloodroot. Sometimes it is also known as the bloodwort, redroot, coon root, paucon, red paucon, sweet slumber, tetterwort, Indian plant, snakebite, turmeric, and black paste. The bloodroot can be found throughout the mid and eastern states of the U.S, as well as a few place in Canada, and it is often found here in Fayetteville, NC.
Heaven's Delight - Vanilla Commercial vanilla is the fruit (capsule) obtained from several different species of Orchidaceae, namely, Vanilla pompona Schiede (West Indian vanilla), Vanilla tahitiensis J. M. Moore (Tahiti vanilla) and Vanilla planifolia Jackson (Mexican vanilla). The most important is Vanilla planifolia Jackson, from which almost all vanilla fruits come from (Ferrão, 1993). The genus Vanilla has about 100 species, and the Orchidaceae family is one of the largest in the Plant Kingdom, with more or less 20,000 species. Etymologically, the word vanilla came from the Spanish vainilla, which means a small pod, due to the great similarity between this fruit and a true pod (Ferrão, 1992; Mabberley, 1993). Floriculture is the field that we immediately recall when we think of orchid plants.
Strawberries Strawberries are small delicate fruit. They can range from having a cone shape, to a spherical shape. They are red juicy fruits thats seeds grow on the outside. They can average about 200 seeds on them and are the only fruits that have their seeds on their skin. Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring.
Juniper Berry Juniper is a short evergreen shrub whose fruit and oil provides a flavoring agent used extensively in the food, perfume, and soap industries. Juniper berry is probably best known as the unique flavoring agent of gin, an important component of the dry martini, a popular intoxicant and a putative calmative revered by western culture for over 300 years. As a medicinal remedy, juniper has a long history of use employed as a treatment for numerous diseases by ancient Greek and Arab healers, as well as Native American Indians. (2) Juniper berries have been used since the 16th century in herbal medicines. They are rich in vitamin C, volatile oils and other nutrients.
Ten stamens and one elongated superior ovary are normal. Most typically the ovary develops in to a simple dry fruit that opens along the seam on both sides. GENERA WITHIN THE FAMILY The Leguminosae family contains approximately 630 genera making it the third largest plant family in the world. The largest general within the Leguminosae family is the Astragalus with over 2,000 species. The genus is native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

Mayapple Podophyllum peltatum is most commonly known as the mayapple, but in various regions it is also known as Devil's apple, hog apple, Indian apple, umbrella plant, wild lemon, and American mandrake (though it should not be confused with true mandrake, Mandragora officinarum, an unrelated Old World plant whose roots have been used throughout history for medicines and potions). The plant gets its generic name from the Greek words podos and phyllon, meaning foot shaped leaves. Peltatum means shield-like. Mayapple is a well know rhizomatous herb that grows in gregarious groups in the oak-hickory forests all over the eastern United States and Southern Canada. The root is composed of many thick tubers, fastened together by fleshy fibres which spreads greatly underground, sending out many small fibers at the joints, which strike downward.
