Their leaves are pinnately
compound, usually sclerophyllous, often bear spines on the leaflet margins, and are typically long-lived (1-3 years, or more) (Chamberlain, 1919; Jones, 1993; Whitelock, 2002; Grobbelaar, 2004).
These results are not entirely surprising; the family name Zygophyllaceae comes from the evenly pinnately
compound leaves, yet V.
The leaves are pinnately
trifoliate and the petioles are 0.
Leaf blade oblong-elliptic to elliptic-ovate, 13-45 cm long; base asymmetrical in sympodial leaves, cordate to deeply auriculate, the biggest lobe half or completely overlapping the petiole; pinnately
veined with 8-16 secondary veins; ciliate and minutely pubescent on both surfaces.
Rhus glabra possesses pinnately
compound leaves, which differ from simple leaves in their plane of symmetry (Bharathan and Sinha, 2001).
compound leaves and fistfuls of flowers simply explode from pale, egg-shaped buds.
5 cm, with a cuneate base that runs decurrent almost to the base of the petiole, glabrous on both sides but the upper side warty, margin slightly undulate, venation pinnately
veined, midvein impressed above, prominent below, secondary veins 10-12 ascending pairs, tertiary veins obscurely reticulate, apex obtuse to acute.
It grows in densely woven mats and is pinnately
Leave: The alternate leaves, 6-11 cm long, are pinnately
compound with three to nine leaflets alternating on the rachis.
The leaves of this wildflower are pinnately
compound and do look somewhat like a ladder It has clusters of nodding, pale blue bell-shaped flowers.
Leaves are simple, alternate, pinnately
or bipinnately dissected (Figure 1(a)), 20-30 x 12-25 cm, becoming smaller towards the apex of the branches.
frutescens is a perennial leguminous shrub with pinnately
compound leaves and bright red flowers which produce inflated bladdery pods.
