K (5) – a calyx with 5 sepals
C5 – corolla fused from 5 petals
A ∞ - many stamens (here, many indicates more than 10-12)

Symmetry or arrangement is described for the whole flower. In such cases, the corresponding symbol is usually placed at the beginning of the formula.

The numbers are inserted after the labels. They may be formatted as sub or superscript. If an organ is absent, its number is written as "0" or it is omitted. Whorls of the same organ are separated by "+" and organ counts within a whorl are separated by ":".
