Examples of monocotyledons


 Image of wheat a type of grass that has long stems and parallel veins the hallmarks of a monocot

Wheat is a type of grass. It has long stems with no secondary growth and leaves that have parallel veins, both hallmarks of the monocot.


Image of a hosta plant also known as plantain lilies it has parallel veins, clearly a monocot

Hostas, also known as plantain lillies, are suited to shady parts of a garden. The hosta’s parallel leaf veins make it immediately recognisable as a monocot.


Image of daffodils that have long narrow stems and parallel veins are monocots for sure

The daffodil belongs to the genus Narcissus. Again, long narrow stems and leaves with parallel veins mark it out as a monocot.
