A thyrse is a large pyramid-shaped cluster of flowers with central stems and branching lateral stems. A corymb is a flat-topped raceme with the lower flowers having longer stalks to bring them up to the same level as the upper flowers. All of these terms are used by botanists and horticulturists to describe the shape and arrangement of flowers in a plant.
