Parts of a Flower
Petals The petals on a flower can come in many different shapes and sizes. They are brightly colored to attract bugs and bees to the flower.
Stem The stem connects the roots and the flower. The stem supports the flower and allows it to stand up.
Sepall The Sepal is the leaf like structure at the top of the stem and the bottom of the petals. The Sepal is the outer coverage to the flower bud and its purpose is to protect the flower bud
Pistil The pistil is the female part of the flower and consists of the stigma, style and ovary
Ovary The ovary matures throughout the growth of the flower and if the flower has fruit, it is the ovary that turns into the fruit.
Ovule The Ovule is located within the ovary. When ovule has been fertilized it will become the seeds of the flower
The stigma is located at the top of the pistil. It is a sticky surface which acts as a catching point for the pollen grains Stigma
Style The style is located between the stigma and the ovary. It is where the pollen tubes grow.
Stamen The stamen is the male part of the flower that is made up of the anther and the filament.
Anther The anther is the part of the stamen that bears and produces the pollen.
Filament The filament is located at the bottom of the anther. It supports the anther so that insects can access the anther.
Parts of a Seed
The Seed coat is the outer layer of the seed that protects the inside of the seed and the embryo from damage, insects, or diseases. Embryo
The embryo is the plant at its earliest form as it starts to develop inside the seed.
Embryo The hypocotyl connects the embryo to the cotyledon and allows the embryo to use the food and nutrients inside the seed.
Embryo In the mature plant the radicle is what will turn into the roots to grow the plant. It will bring nutrients and water up into the plant
Embryo The cotyledon is the stash of food supply for the embryo that it will use until it is old enough to make its own food.
Embryo The epicotyl will develop into the shoot and will be the part of the plant that will grow above the ground.
How Water Travels Through a Flower
Xylem are tubes within the stem of the flower that carry the water and minerals up to the leaves and flower of the plant.
The purpose of the phloem is to move food and nutrients from the leaves to the storage parts of the plant.
