Adnation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adnation in plants is the "union of unlike parts; organically united or fused with another dissimilar part, e.g. an ovary to a calyx tube, or stamens to petals".This is in contrast to connation, the fusion of similar organs.

The tropical pitcher plant Nepenthes adnata is named for its adnate leaf bases


The stamens of Primula vulgaris are adnate to the corolla
