The pistillate flowers are clustered round the bottom of the spadix, and consist of a number of sessile ovaries.
The fruit consists of a cluster of red berries, which form round the spadix.
The spadix is in fact the hectocotylized portion of the fore-foot of the male nautilus.
Other intergrades with spadix from Iowa are mentioned in the account of spadix.
The overall length of the skull is intermediate between that of spadix and primulina.
In other respects it agrees with, or is more nearly like, spadix.
The whole of the spadix is surrounded by a large bract or spathe which is contracted a little distance above its base.
The anthers at the base of the spadix are curious, and should be examined.
At the time of efflorescence the spadix is cut off and the pithy stem is tapped.
The spadix is comparatively small, black, and also covered with hairs.
