Good examples are the white/pink bracts of Eastern Flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) and the red/pink/white bracts of poinsettia. In both cases the colorful parts are modified leaves, and in fact, not flower petals.
Shooting Sports technically, it means a cultivated variety. In practical terms, while walking in the woods a person selects one white-flowered redbud (see Variety) that was very short in height. Then the person vegetatively (made exact copies) propagated that dwarf plant and made it a commercially available cultivar called �Dwarf White�.
drupe a botanical term for a specific type of fruit. In simple terms they often look like a �berry�.
