Hi there...Time to buy a good book on botanical terms and my favorite is: A
Dictionary of Botany by R. John Little and C. Eugene Jones - they define
"the arrangement of flowers on a floral axis; a floral cluster"
which means the individual flowers are clustered together on one
stalk...Amorph. titanum has the largest inflorescence in the world;
Rafflesia has the largest individual flower in the world...
