What great pictures – as always at
your site. We have an article on the taxonomy of Zamioculcas coming in the

Perigone is a word for a perianth in which
the parts are undifferentiated (so all perigones are perianths, but not all
perianths are perigones!). Those little nubbins which all look alike make it a perigone

perianth of individual flowers in the Araceae.
