This plant/branch was part of a table decoration brought home from La Puente, CA, a week ago. It's been kept in a jar of water. I hope to:
- Learn the name(s) of this plant.
- Learn the correct morphology terms (not sure if I said that right) that apply to this plant/its leaves (e.g., about its shape, leaf base/tip/veins). I've looked at some leaf identification charts online but the ID'ing process is totally new to me so it's a little confusing.
Some notes about the accompanying images:
Images A and B --- The top leaf is kind of spiraled, and it has 3 "entire" leaf margins (they're smooth) and 3 surfaces. (Is there a morphology term that applies to the 3 surfaces?)
C, D, and E --- The leaf arrangement of the lowest 4 leaves seems to be "opposite" but then the other leaves above them seem to have an "alternate" or "alternate spiral" arrangement.
