Stages in Growth of Horse-chestnut Bud
|Next Drawing >|
Stages in the growth of Horse-chestnut bud. The bud-forming habit gives the plant the advantages of being able to present a photo- synthesizing surface to the atmosphere very rapidly after weather conditions become favourable. The leaves, already formed in the bud, are available almost at once, whereas it would take many weeks to grow from the single cells at the growing point.
