Definition of centripetal

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Joan:

Developing or progressing from the outer edge to the center.

The order of flowering in a corymb, panicle, raceme, spike and umbel.

An example would be the head of a sunflower, where the oldest flowers are near the edge and the youngest flowers are in the center.
