As discussed in

Actinomorphic flower -

When a flower can be divided into two equal halves by many vertical sections passing through the center called actinomorphic or radial

- wherein

eg: cruciferae, malvaceae

 

And,

 

Types of Aestivation -

(1) Valvate - when sepals or petals lie very close to each other without over lapping eg: mustard , calotropis

(2)  Twisted Aestivation - when one margin of petal or sepal overlaps the margin of next eg: China rose

(3) Imbricate - When both margins of one of the petals are covered by others & both margins of another one are external eg: Caesalpiniaceae

(4) Quincuncial - when two are inner & two are outer, and one is partly outer & partly inner eg: Ranunculus

(5) vexillary - posterior petal is largest & covers two lateral petal the latter in turn nearby overlap the anterior petal eg: pea

 And,

 

Position of floral parts on thalamus -

Hypogyny - ovary is at the top and separable from thalamus. ovary is superior and convex

eg: Brassica & malva

perigyny: ovary is half superior and half inferior. example, rose.

Epigyny - calyx & corolla arise from the upperside of ovary & Ovary is completely surrounded by or fused by thalamus. Ovary is inferior. eg: luffa , Aster
