Description: Small star-shaped flowers at the tips of cymose
or paniculate branching stems.
Hermaphroditic flowers producing capsules were those in terminal positions of the main axis and axillary branches of the cymose
inflorescence; in inflorescences of females, lateral flowers were more likely to mature capsules.
Whereas long shoots are indeterminate, each short shoot terminates in a cymose
