More than 6 petals (Composites)

These flowers have more than six petals and are often composite flowers–one big “flower” made up of many smaller flowers called an inflorescence.  To be clear, the number of petals considered for compositely flowered plants are actually single petals on the outermost flowers within the inflorescence, so consider the florescence as a single flower for the purposes of this guide.
