Explain the structure of a typical flower with the help of a diagram

Flowers are the reproductive part of a plant. They are not only involved in reproduction, but are also a source of food for other living organisms. They are a rich source of nectar. https://cdn1.byjus.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Parts-Of-A-Flower.png

Parts of a Flower

The different parts of a flower are mentioned below:

Vegetative Parts of a Flower

The vegetative part of a flower are as follows:

1. Petals: This is a bright-coloured part that attracts bees, insects, and birds. Colour of petals varies from plant to plant; some are bright while some are pale coloured. Thus, petals help us to differentiate one flower from another
2. Sepals: Sepal is the green-coloured part beneath the petals to protect rising buds. Some flowers have fused petals-sepals while a few have separated petals-sepals

Reproductive Parts of a Flower

The reproductive parts of a flower are as follows:

Stamen: This is the male reproductive organ and is also known as Androecium. It consists of two parts namely: anther and filaments.

1. The anther is a yellowish, sac-like structure, involved in producing and storing the pollens
2. The filament is a slender, threadlike object, which functions by supporting the anther

Pistil: This is the innermost part and the female reproductive organ of a flower which comprises three parts -stigma, style and ovary. This is collectively known as the pistil.

1. Stigma: It is the topmost part or receptive tip of carpels in the gynoecium of a flower
2. Style: It is the long tube-like slender stalk that connects stigma and the ovary
3. Ovary: It is the ductless reproductive gland that holds a lot of ovules. It is the part of the plant where the seed formation takes place
