The Rosaceae (Rose) Family Patterns

There are many different crops in the Rose Family. It has around 3,400 different species in it. Some of the main ones that are mostly known are the berries, apples, peaches, apricots, and almonds. Some plants of the Rose Family are known to have stipples on the stem. Also, plants in the Rose Family tend to have opposite leaves if not stipples. If the plant you are looking at has stipples or off set leaves with symmetrical and an odd number of petals, it could very well be a Rose Family member.  - Prepared by Emily
