bud

an undeveloped embryonic shoot in a plant containing a meristematic area (see MERISTEM) for cell division, surrounded by leaf primordia (immature leaves) with often an outer protective layer of scales formed from modified leaves. The tip of a twig usually carries a terminal bud, while leaves generally have a lateral bud in their AXILS.

All herbaceous and woody plants also have terminal buds at the end of each shoot.
It is mainly driven by the two botanical processes described above: branching resulting from the appearance of lateral buds in growth units and the differentiation sequence of meristems resulting in the change of PAs for terminal buds.

1; Table 1): A) Promotion of a second flush following the opening of a recently formed terminal bud, B) A small continued elongation of the stem with the production of some additional leaves and a significant delay in terminal bud formation, C) No response ("Control" in Figure 1), and D) Death of twig (not shown in figure).
This twig's terminal bud had opened, the large inner bud scales had expanded and fallen back, and the green, velvety beginnings of leaves and stems had begun to grow skyward.
For large flowers, pinch out the side buds to leave a single terminal bud.
The terminal buds were in the form of cell clusters and contained glycogen rich inner luminal and outer myoepithelial precursor cells at 11.
In this case, shoots are left long on the spurs and then pruned as the terminal buds start to leaf out.
minima were haphazardly selected from each plot and terminal buds were examined for signs of feeding.
First-stage dormancy starts with the outermost terminal buds, to the twigs, branches and down into the trunk.
Long flower spikes, upwards of 300 mm (12in) long appear from mid-October onwards from the terminal buds at the top of each main stem and, as the flowers open, they give off a beautiful scent, attracting small birds in to drink the nectar and late-flying bees to take advantage of the free food supply.
