The exact summits of all the hills are covered with a coarse spicate
Many flowers from the axil of a bract; no bractioles interspersed, hence we may expect racemose or spicate partial inflorescences.
The spikelets are all unisexual, spicate, the male and female spikelets are dissimilar, and are on the same or on different spikes.
Spikelets binate below and 3-nate at the top on a spicate or panicled inflorescence 28.
Wigand mentions an instance in _Digitalis lutea_, where the upper part of the stem was divided into six or seven racemes; possibly this was a case of fasciation, but such a division of the inflorescence is by no means uncommon in the spicate species of _Veronica_.
In Grasses, as indeed in other plants with a spicate inflorescence, this change occurs not unfrequently.
Under this head, too, may be included those cases wherein an ordinarily spicate inflorescence becomes paniculate owing to the branching of the axis and the formation of an unwonted number of secondary buds.
