White-fruited Rowan (Sorbus glabrescens) corymb; note the branched structures holding the fruits.

A panicle is a compound raceme, a loose, much-branched indeterminate inflorescence with pedicellate flowers (and fruit) attached along the secondary branches (in other words, a branched cluster of flowers in which the branches are racemes). This type of inflorescence is largely characteristic of grasses like oat and crabgrass*, as well as other plants such as pistachio and mamoncillo. Note that botanists use the term paniculate in two ways: "having a true panicle type of inflorescence" as well as "having an inflorescence with the form but not necessarily the structure of a panicle."
