The epidermis may have various extensions of one- or many-celled hairs (trichomes, r) some of which may be glandular. Glandular excretions include terpenes (essential oils, carotenoids, saponins, or rubber), tannins, or crystals (such as salt). Fragrance in ﬂowers is provided when essential oils in the petals vaporize. Non-glandular hairs may be found on any shoot surface as well as on seeds such as cotton (see 90) and willow (see 95). Menthol in mints is produced in hairs on the leaves. It is the primary ﬂavoring constituent of peppermint too.

Trichomes (Hairs). The epidermis may have various extensions of one- or many-celled hairs (trichomes, r) some of which may be glandular.
