Fasciation in Plants
Sometimes we get a plant or plant part that really makes identifying the plant or plant part fun and interesting. According to the Webster dictionary fasciation is the flattening of the meristem or plant tip. While rare, it has been observed in many plants of all types. Probably the one we would be the most familiar with is a crested saguaro. The plant brought to our office was from a Texas Mountain Laurel [Sophora secundiflora]. What is more interesting, is this tree is not mentioned in any list of plants that have been observed. There could be any number of outside factors causing this. Stress, injury, sudden weather changes, or if the plant just does it. Fasciation does not kill the plant. It just makes it look different. If you observe a plant part taking a strange shape, bring it in. We can also help identify plants and what may be wrong with the sick ones. Our office is open week days from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. We are just off Shea road and our telephone number is 928 669-9843
