Dicots, or dicotyledons, are one of the two major groups of angiosperms (flowering plants). The name refers to a characteristic these plants share. They typically have two embryonic leaves known as cotyledons. Another characteristic most dicots share is secondary growth. Unlike monocots, dicots can produce wood and bark. All of our favorite trees and shrubs are dicots or gymnosperms and many of our favorite herbaceous perennials are dicots. Join Douglas Ruhren on this tour as he shows you of our favorite dicots.
