Flower Parts

 

Click on the diagram to enlarge.   Below are descriptions of the different parts of a flower.

Basic Parts of a Flower:

  • Anther – the pollen-bearing portion of a stamen
  • Filament – the stalk of a stamen
  • Ovary – the structure that encloses the undeveloped seeds of a plant
  • Ovules – female reproductive cells of a plant
  • Petal – one of the innermost modified leaves surrounding the reproductive organs of a plant; usually brightly colored
  • Pistil – the female part of the flower, composed of the ovary, stigma, and style
  • Pollen – the male reproductive cells of plants
  • Sepal – one of the outermost modified leaves surrounding the reproductive organs of a plant; usually green
  • Stigma – the tip of the female organ in plants, where the pollen lands
  • Style – the stalk, or middle part, of the female organ in plants (connecting the stigma and ovary)
  • Stamen – the male part of the flower, composed of the anther and filament; the anther produces pollen
