Cyme: A usually flat-topped or convex flower cluster (inflorescence) in which the primary stem and each side branch end in a flower that opens before the flowers below or to the side of it (determinate). Annual Baby's Breath (Gypsophila muralis) and tomatoes have cymes.

This is a good idea---to have a gardeners glossary on line.
Thank you for doing it, Woofie!
I especially like the examples that you give,-
so we can associate the terms with our own plants.
