Species of woody plants and rose plants include trees, bushes, and
hardy perennials. Rosaceae species are subdivided into 4 subfamilies:
Spiraeoideae, Rosoideae, Maloideae (pomaceous fruit, e.g. apple) and
Prunoideae (stone fruits, e.g. cherry). The flowers mostly feature a
pentameric perianth and numerous stamen. An apple flower is the perfect
model of 5’s in Fibonacci’s sequence. The flower is radial, five-whorle
and five-part. Five sepals form the inner whorle, next to them are 5
petals. There are typically 5 inflorescence on a branch. The stamina are
bunched in five’s, this model has 4 sets of stamen. While individual
flowers vary in numbers of sets they are always in multiples of five.
Hawthorn (Crategus monogyna) and Cherry (Cerasus vulgaris) have similar
flowers. A spectacularly beautiful model, the rounded white leaves are
barely tinted with pink. The powder-coat paint on the stem and anthers
give this model a realistic look & feel.
