Plant Bingo

There were a few terms I couldn’t find, so I just replaced them with a few I thought were interesting and in my yard! This was really fun seeing all of the different plants I have in my yard. I had my finance and mom out looking with me!

  1. Thanks Jasmine,
    that sounds like a fun adventure showing off your botanical knowledge and doing a scavenger hunt. Great examples! Not sure if the monadelphous stamen arrangement applies to the cottonwood catkin though. I think it is a rather specialized term, and it is not found in too many plant families. The cotton family Malvaceae is well known for its monadelphous stamens, Hibiscus is a great example. See below an image of Hibiscus by Sumana Bhattacharyya. Note the 5 stigma lobes.
