Caption: An example of the Fibonacci series of numbers in the pattern of leaves radiating from the stem of a "love-lies- bleeding" plant (Amaranthus caudatus). The yellow stickers number the leaves in sequence. The leaves roughly above that with the red spot are numbered 3, 5, 8 and 13: all Fibonacci numbers. The Fibonacci numbers form a series in which each number is the sum of the previous two, ie. 0,1,1, 2,3,5,8,13,21 and so on.
