What do flowers do?

Flowers are sexual structures. Their purpose is to attract pollinators to the plant and guide these pollinators to the nectaries of the plant while at the same time ensuring that as the pollinator arrives any pollen brought by the pollinator is placed on the stamen and before it leaves it is dusted with new pollen from the flower. The flower ensures the plants ovules get fertilized so that the plant can make seeds so that it can reproduce itself.
