A plant's apical bud.
The uppermost bud on the main stem of a tree. See leader.
Buds which terminate a twig are defined as terminal buds or end buds. Compare to lateral buds which develop along the side of the twig.
A bud borne at the tip of a stem or shoot. The primary growth energy of the plant occurs here.
the bud at the end of a twig
bud at the growing end of the main stem.
bud at the apex of a stem.
the bud on a tree found at the tip.
the end bud, by which a stem continues its growth.
A branch tip, an undeveloped shoot containing rudimentary floral buds or leaves, enclosed within protective bud scales.
The uppermost bud on a stem.
A bud that occurs at the end of a stem. Although it is usually a vegetative bud that will continue the growth of the stem the following year, it can also be a floral bud that will flower the following year. Some trees do not have a true terminal bud ( Tree of Heaven is a good example), in which case the uppermost lateral bud serves its purpose.
large, vigorous buds at the tips of stems.
bud located at end of stem and not associated with a branch
The terminal bud is a bud located at the apex (tip) of the stem. This type of bud is the dominant bud, since it can cause all the lateral (side) buds below them to remain dormant at all times of the year. Terminal buds have special tissue, called apical meristem, cells that can divide indefinitely.
