A collection of flower parts diagrams are available in this post to help you learn about the parts of a flower. With the beauty that it possesses, flower mainly becomes the representation of love and aesthetics. The beauty in a flower is made up from several parts including petals, sepals, and the male part called the stamen and the female part called the pistil. For more details of the structure of a flower, follow our anatomy diagrams in the following images.
In the flower parts diagram above, the parts of a flower are illustrated clearly. The stamen has two parts: anthers and filaments. The anthers carry the pollen and are generally yellow in color. Anthers are held up by a thread-like part called a filament. The pistil has three parts: stigma, style, and ovary. The stigma is the sticky surface at the top of the pistil; it traps and holds the pollen. The style is the tube-like structure that holds up the stigma. The style leads down to the ovary that contains the ovules. More anatomy diagrams of a flower are posted right below.
Other parts of the flower that are important are the petals and sepals. Petals are also important parts of the flower, because they help attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies and bats. The sepals are the green petal-like parts at the base of the flower. Sepals help protect the developing bud. Flowers can have either all male parts, all female parts, or a combination. Flowers with all male or all female parts are called imperfect (cucumbers, pumpkin and melons). Flowers that have both male and female parts are called perfect (roses, lilies, dandelion).
