Phyllotaxy is the arrangement of leaves on a stem or axis. Phyllotaxy is usually of three types which are shown in the given figures A (alternate), B (opposite) and C (whorled). In alternate type, one leaf is borne at a node and leaves are arranged alternately giving a spiral form. e.g, mango, mustard and tobacco.
