2 PLANT ORGANSSome flower organs are responsible for support or function, but others function in a reproductive role.
3 PLANT ORGANS In general, flowers have four organs: Sepals Petals StamensPistils – one or more.
4 PLANT ORGANSSEPALSSepals protect the flower bud and can look like small leaves or even resemble the flower’s petals.
5 PLANT ORGANSPETALSPetals are usually colorful structures that can both attract pollinators and provide them with a landing platform.
6 PLANT ORGANSSepals and petals, if present, are attached to a flower stalk, called a peduncle.
7 PLANT ORGANSMost flowers have several stamens – the male reproductive organs.
8 PLANT ORGANS Stamens are composed of two parts: 1) Filament-supports the anther2) Anther-Forms the pollen grains.
9 PLANT ORGANSThe female reproductive part of the flower is the pistil, located in the center of the flower.
10 PLANT ORGANS The pistil usually has three parts: Stigma – tip of the pistil. This is where pollination occurs.Style – Part that connects the stigma to the ovaryOvary – contains one or more ovules which is where the egg forms.
11 PLANT ORGANS STRUCTURAL DIFFERENCES Flowers that have sepals, petals, stamens, and one or more pistils are called complete flowers.If one is missing, it is an incomplete flower.
