Considering the way the leaf blade or lamina is divided leaves can either be simple or compound in shape.
Difference between simple leaf and compound leaf
A simple leaf has a single blade. A simple leaf may have incisions but these incisions are not deep enough to divide the blade into leaflets (one of the subdivisions of a compound leaf).
The blades of compound leaves are divided into distinct parts called leaflets.
An axillary bud is present in the axil of a simple leaf
Axillary bud is present in the axil of a compound leaf as well, but the leaflets of a compound leaf do not have them.
Example: Mango, Guava
Example: Rose, Coriander, Azadirachta indica (Neem), Moringa
