1 Flower Dissection

2 Scientific classification
Alstroemeria Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae (unranked): Angiosperms Monocots Order: Liliales Family: Alstroemeriaceae Genus: Alstroemeria L. Specie


4 Petals, Sepals, or Tepals
The alstroemeria is a type of flower that has tepals, because the petals and sepals are similar.

5 Stamen: Filament, Anther

6 Pistil: Stigma Ovary

7 Pistil Types

8 Ovary Types

9 Staminate: Has only functional stamen

10 Carnation = male

11 Pistiliate: has only functional pistil

12 Perfect: Has both functional stamen and pistil

13 Cotyledon: Embryonic first leaves
Features Monocotyledon Dicotyledon Leaf structure Parallel veins Network veins Roots Fibrous roots Tap roots Stem Soft Hard No. of cotyledons 1 2 Number of petals Divisible by 3 Divisible by 4 or 5


15 Alstroemeria = Monocot

16 Tepals : Petals and Sepals
Both the striped petals and the sepals, which are the leaves between the petals, come in an arrangement of three each. The petals and sepals have similar color and texture, so the sepals actually resemble the petals much more closely than they resemble most green leaves.

17 Reproductive Structures
Alstreomeria plants contain six undivided stamens, which are the male reproductive stalks extending from the center of the flower. The ovaries of the flower have three carpels and are known as inferior, because they are fused to the base floral structure.

18 Leaves Alstroemeria plants are like grasses, irises and lilies in that veins go up to the leaves but do not branch across. These leaves are actually upside down because they twist as they extend from the stem. This feature is known as being resupinate.
