How it works
The parameters in the Leaves section describe how leaves are created, grow, and are drawn.
Leaf 3D object, scale, colors
See the section on A common suite of parameters for drawing 3D objects.
Leaf 3D object X rotation before drawing
This parameter was added to accommodate the case where leaves are designed
backward and appear on the plant upside-down. Usually you won't want to change this parameter, but then again you can use it to create some
If compound, number of leaflets/shape
Compound leaves are leaves that are not whole (entire) but are made up of a
series of smaller leaflets. To specify compound leaves, change the number of
leaflets to a number greater than one. You can choose between pinnate
(feather-shaped) and palmate (hand-shaped) leaves.
