Shrub species

The shrub species are plants whose stem is called the shrub. The shrub is a "caule" of woody consistency with fully lignified branches that leave directly from base: it is also defined frutice.In the shrubs the mass of branches dominates along the main axis, the primary stem may not exceed in size the secondary stems and the plant takes a bushy aspect.In this area we recognize all the species belonging to the Dicotyledons class, the Angiosperms with two embryonic leaves or cotyledons in the seed.The Dicotyledons have taproots, "rettinervie" leaves, a stem with side bundles or bicollateral open, i.e. with secondary growth.The whorls of the flower are made up of 4 or 5 pieces; tetramerous or pentamerous architecture.The fruits, dry or fleshy, are of all types
