Examples

  • Farther, that all plants _are_ petaled and sepaled, and never mere cups in saucers, is a great fact, not to be dwelt on in a note.

    Proserpina, Volume 2 Studies Of Wayside Flowers

  • But their calices are five-sepaled, falling into divisions of two and three; and the flowers, though essentially four-petaled, may divide either the upper or lower petal, or both, into two lobes, and so present a six-lobed outline.

    Proserpina, Volume 2 Studies Of Wayside Flowers

  • The calyx may be five - or four-sepaled; the corolla, five - or four-lobed; the stamens may be two, four, four with a rudimentary fifth, or five with the two anterior ones longer than the other three!
