Caption: Upper surface of a tuberose flower petal (Polianthes tuberosa), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Polianthes tuberosa is commonly known as the tuberose or bone flower. It is a perennial plant of the agave family (Agavaceae) that grows from a tuber. The tuberose flower petal surface is composed of tightly pack epidermal cells. These epidermal cells have a distinct surface pattern as seen in this image. An essential oil from this flower is used in the perfume industry. The tuberose is a night-blooming plant thought to be native to Mexico. In Hawaii tuberose is grown for the production of leis. Magnification: x265 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
