PLANTS: HOW THEY LIVE AND HOW THEY ARE MADE
They are those in which both the main axis and the lateral branches are of limited growth for which they take the name of defined inflorescences and are characterized by the fact that they all end with a flower.CIMA UNIPARA OR MONOCASIO
In this form, below the flower that closes the main axis, a single lateral branch is formed which in turn produces another and so on. We can have:
- unipar helical top if the following branches branch off from one side and the other side in succession (eg. Cichorium intybus);
- uniparous scorpioid tip if the branches branch off from the same side instead. The latter type is characteristic ofBoraginaceae. In fact, in it the inflorescence is pendulous while in the helical top it is erect.
Unipar helical rope (Hypericum perforatum)
CIMA BIPARA OR DICASIO
Cima unipara scorpioid (Heliotropium europaeum)
This type of inflorescence occurs when, below the terminal flower of the axis, two branches are formed from each of which two more branch off and so on.

- CIMOSE INFLORESCENCE: uniparous or monocase tip, bipar or dicase tip
