The peduncles grow from the axils of the leaves, and they are branched and many-flowered.
Its glossy leaves are ovate-lanceolate, and its peduncles short.
Two peduncles mostly come out of the upper sheath; some leaves are biennial.
The leaves are long and silvery beneath; and the capsules, the peduncles, and the calyxes, are all woolly.
Peduncles usually exceeding the leaves; with a single leaflet below the flower.
The animals inhabiting them have well-formed heads with a short muzzle, long and slender tentacles, and eyes mounted on peduncles.
Just back of the tentacles the eyes are placed at the end of two short, rounded prominences or peduncles.
In these cases the peduncles may persist and may even be modified into spinous organs of defence.
The petioles and peduncles contain numerous spiral vessels, which have been used for wicks of candles.
The flower-heads are solitary, on peduncles from three to eight inches long, and of a bright yellow colour.
