It is so heavy that certain types of bugs actually have to lift it out. It is the state flower of Kentucky and Nebraska. Goldenrods are perennial herbs with wand like stems and stalk-less leaves. They usually grow to a height of 1.2 m (4 ft), but environmental conditions and species variations give them a range of 30 cm to 2 m (1 to 7 ft). Their yellow flowers are in graceful clusters.

[Top] ---Description---The Crab-tree is a small tree of general distribution in Britain south of Perthshire. In most respects it closely resembles the cultivated Apple of the orchard differing chiefly only in the size and flavour of the fruit. Well-grown specimens are not often met with, as in woods and copses it is cramped by other trees and seldom attains any considerable height, 30-foot specimens being rare and many being mere bushes.
Recurved spines that achieve to 7 mm long are located on the undersides of the petioles, petioules and stems. Source : PlantSystematic.org Figure 1: The fruits of Mimosa pigra. The inflorescences, containing up to 100 flowers are spherical which are about 1 cm across and pink violence. The species is rare because it consists of androdioecious with both male and hermaphrodite
Yellow nutsedge (weedy) has been reported to produce 605 million seeds per hectare in Massachusetts (4). Both reproduce vegetatively in great numbers. Research indicates that a single nutsedge tuber can produce about 1900 plants and 7000 tubers in one yearly (8). The weedy nutsedge was introduced to the Dutch Netherlands in the late 1970's concealed in Gladiolus and it was so invasive that in 1984 a restriction was implemented by the government. This regulation prohibits the harvest of any root crop in a field that is infested with the yellow nutsedge (3).
While there are many useful plants in the family Euphorbiaceae, the sweet and bitter cassava plants (Manihot dulcis and Manihot esculenta), as well as the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis), are of greatest economic importance. Latex bearing plants are found in some 20 botanical families. The most prominent families include Sapotaceae, Moraceae, Compositae, Apocynaceae, Asclepiadaceae, and Euphorbiaceae. In total there are about 18,000 species of latex-producing plants. Yet, only a few species are currently exploited.
(St.-Pierre, 1991). The buds have an alternate arrangement and are a medium sized, 1/4inch-3/8 inch. They are a dark-brown to purplish color. The leaves and pits contain a poisonous cyanide-like substance that can cause serious health problems. Cooking or drying destroys these toxins (Turner, 1990).
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).
Floriculture is the field that we immediately recall when we think of orchid plants. However, the genus Vanilla is the only one of the family that is of direct economic interest. Some rural societies in Turkey and Greece still use salep, a staple flour made from the tubers of certain orchids, especially those included in the genus Orchis. Although the use of orchids for this purpose is rather localised, it is bringing some species of this genus to the edge of extinction (Baumann, 1996). The vanilla plant is a vine, native from the tropical forests of Central America and some areas of South America.
Its flesh varies in color depending up on the cultivar and may be white, pink, yellow or red. Guava is low in calories and fats but contain several vital vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant. Fresh fruit is a very rich source of potassium 417 mg or 9%. It contains more potassium than other fruits like banana. The fruit is also a source of minerals like calcium 18 mg or 2% and sodium 2 mg or 0% .
The mucus like fluid on the tentacles is an acidic enzyme that assists in the digestion of the plants prey. This species is considered pubescent with many trichomes covering the majority of the plant. The flowers found on the cape sundew are simple, and generally come in colors of red, pink or white with each flower borne on a single stem. Each flower generally has 5 petals that are from 12-14 mm across. Stamen are short with a rhomboid connective, with the locules diverging below.
