Fibonacci spiral patterns appear in many plants, such as pinecones, pineapples, and sunflowers. The patterns consist of spirals that curve around a surface both clockwise and counterclockwise.

Begonia Escargot leafs present both the spiral and the branching fractal of the leaf-veins. Their construction responds to plant's both needs for correct water distribution and for strengthening structure: "leaf vein networks differentiate roles of leaf support and hydraulic supply between hierarchical orders."
