Growth of wood and fruit emanating from the nodes; buds, branchlets and cones, therefore, in verticillate association.
In the verticillate or simultaneous arrangement of leaves the case is somewhat different.
Flowers sessile, verticillate, on the ends of several very long peduncles which rise from the midst of the petioles.
Spines of very different size and shape, three-sided prismatic, verticillate.
Most of the species are North American herbs, having opposite, alternate, or verticillate leaves.
Conelets single or verticillate, their scales mucronate; conelets of the second year only slightly enlarged.
verticillate: placed in whorls: antennae in which the joints have a circle of long, fine hair as in Cecidomyiids.
The root-leaves are somewhat heart-shaped, thick, and fleshy; stem simple, with verticillate branches; flower diœcious.
Cells of the same number as the styles, verticillate, with solitary seeds.
Radial spines slender, verticillate, three or four divergent arising from each nodal point of the surface.
verticillate ver·ti·cil·late (vûr'tĭ-sĭl'ĭt, -āt')
Arranged in or forming a whorl or whorls.
