Send Me An Email Quit The Steam : The Steam The steam is the part of the flower that holds it up straight
The steam is also in charge of moving water up to the different parts of the flowers as a food source The Steam is also know as the Peduncle Quit The Sepal : The Sepal These are the little leaves on the outside of the petals which protect the flower before it opens The highlighted area in this picture shows us what the sepals look like on the flower and where they are located on the flower Quit The Petals : The Petals The petals are the colorful part of the flower
They attract the different types of insects that help to pollinate the flowers Different types of flowers can have different amount of petals. Flowers can also have different colored petals, like red or yellow or pink. Quit The Pistils : The Pistils The different parts of the Pistil are the Female reproductive organs.
These parts are the Stigma and the Style
The Pistil is the long slender tube that runs down the center of the flower The pistil in the flower look like long rolled tubes of leaves Quit The Stigma : The Stigma The sticky bulb that is found at the center of the flower.
If pollen lands on the stigma it then travels down the long tube (the Style) and helps to create the seeds of the flower The Stigma is sticky so that when insects pollinate the flowers the pollen will stick to the stigma Quit The Style : The Style This is the long tube that is attached to the Stigma
After the pollen lands on top of the Stigma it travels down the Style to the bottom of the flower The length of the Style depends on the flower. Some flowers have a long Style and some have a short Style. Quit The Stamen : The Stamen The different parts of the Stamen make up the Male Reproductive organs of the flower
These parts are the Filament and the Anther
They are in charge of making the pollen for the flower The number of Stamen in the flower usually equals the number of petals that the flower has Quit The Filament : The Filament The Filaments are the thin stalks which the Anthers sit on The Filaments are attached to the base of the petals Quit The Anther : The Anther The Anther is the part of the flower which makes the pollen
The Anther sits on top of the Filament When an insect rubs up against the Anther, the pollen that is on the Anther transfers to the insect, which they can then use to pollinate other nearby flowers.
