I for Indeterminate – Word Up!

Indeterminate
\ˌɪndɪˈtəːmɪnət\
When describing an inflorescence, this term means that the flower stems are not terminated by a single flower at the tip but have flowers all the way up the stem, the lower flowers usually opening first – for example the foxglove. With plants in general, it can mean that the stem will carry on growing indefinitely, as in the case of cordon grown tomatoes.
