The color is lighter than the other species and the leaves are armed along the edges and the midribs.
The midribs are removed and the segments are rolled into round bundles, say by fives.
This convexity is rendered possible by the support afforded by the basal edges of the six midribs.
They are usually twice pinnatifid, the pinnules being connected by a very narrow foliaceous border along the midribs.
Leaves long and narrow; the veins and midribs green; the head is greenish, and generally covered by the leaves.
Also, she had ten coils of dewarra (cowrie shells threaded on the midribs of the coco-nut leaf, and used as the native currency).
They are the persistent spiny stalks or midribs of the older leaves from which the leaflets have dropped away.
The midribs are removed while green, and the leaves are rolled into bundles of convenient size, say by fives.
Remove the leaves, cut the midribs into equal lengths, tie in small bunches, boil thirty minutes.
The bases of the midribs widen out and wrap round the stem like a kind of sheath, as almost all leaf-stalks do to some extent.
The central or main vein of a leaf, as in eudicots, magnoliids, and ferns. Midribs generally protrude from the underside of leaves with pinnate venation. See more at venation.
