An organographic survey of floral trichomes along with their distribution, ontogeny, systematic and functional significance has been presented in
Four types of glandular and two of non-glandular trichomes have been recognised. Ontogenetically the different types of glandular trichomes mainly differ in the pattern of divisions in the head cells and their subsequent differentiation. The richness of total proteins of the heads of some of these suggests them to serve the function of lubrication during gliding growth of floral parts in bud condition.
