In the summer wheats it may often be observed that the median florets do not fill out so fully as in the autumn wheats.
Try using florets in curries, stir-fries and creamy soups.
So also in Labiatae, such as dead-nettle (Lamium), the different whorls of inflorescence are developed centripetally, while the florets of the verticillaster are centrifugal.
In the capitula of Compositae we sometimes find the florets converted into green leaves.
In the dahlia the florets are rendered quilled, and are made to assume many glowing colours.
