1. The flower blossoms contain the reproductive parts of a plant. 1a. The two small yellow sacs in the center of the blossom are called anthers. They contain a fine powdery pollen. The pistil is the female part of the plant. It's sticky end collects the pollen and sends it down to the ovary. 2. This bud will develop and become a blossom. 3. Bloom stalk contains peduncle, pedicel, and cluster of blossoms growing on one stem as a unit. It appears from the juncture of the main stem and the petiole. 4. Petiole stem that connects leaf blade to the main center stem. 5. Suckers in the diagram to the right shows where crowns form between the stems. These are encouraged on trailing (multiple crown) varieties. Remove any suckers on single crowned plant varieties. (Sucker's can be rooted in soil for an additional plantlet) 6. Developing seed pod resulting from fertilization of eggs in an ovary located at the base of the pistil. 7. Spent blossom this is an old flower that has wilted. I have placed a PDF file in the related links, this has all the information for you.
