Below upwards and leaving the placentas with the seeds attached to the replum or framework of the septum.
The ovary is incompletely divided into many chambers by the ingrowth of the placentas which bear numerous ovules and form in the fruit a many-seeded short capsule opening by small valves below the upper edge.
The ovary of passionflowers is one-celled with three parietal placentas, and bears at the top three styles, each capped by a large button-like stigma.
In many cases, however, the placentas are formations from the axis (axile), and are not connected with the carpellary leaves.
This is seen in cases where the margins of the carpel do not unite, but remain separate, and consequently two placentas are formed in place of one.
