In the Insignes the cone is oblique, persistent and serotinous, and the spring-shoot is multinodal.
The ray-pits are small and the spring-shoots are, with two exceptions, multinodal.
The perfect multinodal branchlet is formed in the winter-bud (fig. 8-a) and the spring-shoot is multinodal.
Spring-shoots uninodal in some, multinodal in other species.
On multinodal shoots they are often multiserial, appearing on two or more nodes of the same spring-shoot (fig. 33).
Associated with the latter are the persistent cone and the multinodal spring-shoot.
The multinodal shoot is never invariable in a species, but is rare, common or prevalent.
On multinodal branchlets the inner nodes bear lateral buds which may be latent.
nodal nod·al (nōd'l)
Of, relating to, resembling, being, or situated near or at a node.
