How do plants reproduce sexually?

Insects like bees transfer pollen between flowers on the Roses by accident when they are gathering nectar. The pollen contains the genetic material that is used by the Roses for sexual reproduction.
Roses have flowers and can be pollinated to reproduce sexually, but many varieties of roses have flowers that are so tight as to not provide adequate access to bees for pollination.
When the bees come for their nector, they also take pollen with them. The bee gose to other flowers spreading the 1st flowers pollen then creating more flowers.
