How can I identify the difference between the male and the female Helwingia chinensis, a dioecious shrub?

Took some looking but I found this-
"Male flowers about 5 in an umbel, stalked, with 35 stamens.
Female flowers stalkless, in groups of 13, with an inferior ovary with 3 or 4 carpels, each containing 1 ovule; style with 35 stigmas."

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
