I thought most of you would find this interesting:

We were asked to bring in samples (live) of plants and flowers that had
certain characteristics.  The challenge is to keep the amount of samples
small with still showing al the characteristics.  I would appretiate any
input any of you have.  Even just a single source on the internet where
I could find the definitions to these words. Thanks!  Please reply to
