Flower plants

Plants with flowers belong to the group of Angiosperms, plants that enclose the reproductive organs inside a flower.
The flower, which derives from the modification of the tip of a branch, is composed of various parts, namely:
- external calyx formed by green sepals
- internal corolla formed by petals of various colors
- gynaeceum (female reproductive system) comprising a pistil, a stylus and a stigma that enclose an ovary containing the eggs
- androcean (male reproductive system) comprising stamens with anthers containing pollen.
The flowers therefore perform the fundamental function of presiding over the plant's reproductive process and also have the task of attracting (with the beauty of their corollas) the insects responsible for pollination.
