Glossary: cyme


an inflorescence in which the central axis is terminated by a flower which opens first, and subsequent growth takes place from lateral branches which may themselves be terminated in a flower, so that further growth takes place from further lateral branches and so on. The oldest flowers are therefore at the apex.
