A spadix is the central cylinder of the aroid flowering structure
(inflorescence) on which the flowers are carried (e.g., the rod-like
structure in the middle of a Spathiphyllum, etc.) backed by the leaf-
like spathe. The combination of the spadix and spathe plus the
flowers lacking individual bracts are the defining characteristics of
almost all aroids.
