Cymenoun

Corymb

Corymb is a botanical term for an inflorescence with the flowers growing in such a fashion that the outermost are borne on longer pedicels than the inner, bringing all flowers up to a common level. A corymb has a flattish top with a superficial resemblance towards an umbel, and may have a branching structure similar to a panicle.

Cymenoun

more or less flat-topped cluster of flowers in which the central or terminal flower opens first
