This is not always the case, but when it is it is because only one pistil will fertilize seeds. The pollen however, won't always make it to the pistil, so there needs to be more pollen produced.

Do all flowers have petals?

No. There are petalless flowers. They reproduce by having the wind release their pollen.different classifications of flowers according to the presence or absence of their parts:Complete flowers are made up of calyx, corolla, stamens, and a pistil or pistils (the four "regular parts").Incomplete flowers lack one or more of the four regular parts of a complete flower as in all of the Fagaceae (oak family), Betulaceae (birch family) and Juglandaceae (walnut family).Perfect flowers have both stamens and pistils, but not necessarily sepals or petals.Imperfect flowers lack either stamens or pistils, and may or may not have sepals or petals.Naked flowers are without petals (apetalous) or sepals (asepalous) as in Zantedeschia spp. (calla lily).Apetalous flowers lack petals as in Elaeagnus pungens (silverthorn), Hydrangea spp. and Cornus florida (flowering dogwood).Staminate (male) flowers have a stamen or stamens, but no functional pistils.Pistillate (female) flowers have a pistil or pistils, but no functional stamens.

What is the difference between complete flowers and incomplete flowers?

Incomplete flower One which lacks any one or more of these parts; calyx, corolla, stamens, and pistils. And Complete flowers contain both the male and female parts (stamen and pistil) as well as sepals and petals. Hope it helps


What is the stamens function in a flower?

The stamen is referred to as the "male" part of a flower because it produces pollen. Once pollen is deposited on the pistil (the "female" part) seeds are produced. Pollen is often carried on the legs of honey bees and as the bees flit from flower to flower collecting nectar, the pollen is deposited on the pistils. The plant makes seeds, the seeds are scattered about the ground (often in bird poop) The seeds germinate, that is, they grow into new plants. The more I study the evolution of life on our planet, the more amazing it all seems.


When is a flower termed a complete flower?

Short:A complete flower has all four components: petals, sepals, pistil and stamen.A perfect flower has both male (stamen) and female (pistil) reproductive parts. Therefore all complete flowers are perfect, but not all perfect flowers are complete.More and Better:A flower having sepals, petals, stamens, and pistils is complete; lacking one or more of such structures, it is said to be incomplete.Stamens and pistils are not present together in all flowers. When both are present the flower is said to be perfect, or bisexual, regardless of a lack of any other part that renders it incomplete.Bisexual or perfect flowers have both male (androecium) and female (gynoecium) reproductive units, including stamens, carpels, and an ovary.Flowers that contain both androecium and gynoecium are called androgynous or hermaphroditic.Examples of plants with perfect or bisexual flowers include the lily, rose, and most plants with large showy flowers, though perfect flower does not have to have petals or sepals.A complete flower is a perfect flower with petals and sepals.A flower is termed unisexual flower if it is either functionally male or functionally female, but not both. A whole plant may be of only one type or a plant may have both male and female flowersSome plants have bisexual flowers but the pollen is produced before the stigma of the same flower is receptive of pollen. These are described as protandrous flowers.

Can an incomplete flower be a perfect flower?

An incomplete flower can be a perfect flower.Basic Flower Facts:The four parts of flowers are sepals, petals, stamens, and pistils.The flower is termed "complete" when all four structures are present and "incomplete" when any one is missing.The flower is termed "perfect" when it has both male (stamen) and female (pistil) reproductive parts and "imperfect" if it has only one.Perfect flowers are not necessarily complete.Complete flowers are necessarily perfect.More Flower Facts:Perfect flowers also termed bisexual, whether or not they have sepals or petals.Bisexual flowers are also said to be hermaphroditic.All complete flowers are therefore perfect and bisexual and hermaphroditic.

What is the pistils job?

Pistils grow out of the female buds of a plant to more efficiently catch pollen from the male plant that is floating through the air.


Why are some flowers brightly colored and others are not?

Flowers are brightly coloured to attract insects for pollination. Insect pollinated flowers are brightly coloured or sweet scented. Flowers which are not brightly coloured are most likely to be wind pollinated so they do not to attract insects. The stamens hangs down so that the wind can carry the pollen grains. The stamens present in wind pollinated flowers are usually more than the ones in the insect pollinated flower.


What are the male and female parts of a flower and how do they work?

This is a very complex question, with many answers; there are a lot of kinds of flowers and a slew of different reproductive methods to go with them.However, in a "perfect" flower (that is, a complete flower, with both stamen and pistils--monoclinous flowers) the stamen(s) is/are the "male" part and the pistil is the "female" part. The stamens produce pollen containing the male gametophyte while the pistil is made up of a number of carpels, which contain the female gametophyte. When pollination occurs, the two gametophytes are brought together and--BAM--you've got baby flowers.(See related link below for more information.)


What are the properties of a cactus flower?

Cactus are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north. They are often found in drought-ridden areas.

Cactus flowers usually have many stamens, but only a single style, which may branch at the end into more than one stigma.


What flower does the bumble bee pollinate?

Bumblebees also pollinate wildflowers. Bumblebees are attracted to flowers with narrow corolla tubes, such as blueberries and cranberries. They mainly forage for pollen rather than nectar and transfer more pollen to the pistils with each visit.


List three ways that the female organs of the flower is different from the male organs of the flower?

1- The male androecium are the numerous stamens; there are always several stamento each pistil.2- The stamen has two parts and is never compound. Anthers are the end bobbles that generate pollen grains (male gametophyte) in antheridia. The stamen has a vascular stalk called a filament that elevates and provides nutrients for the pollen producing anther.3- The pollen grains are released.1- A flower may have one or more pistils.2- The female gynoecium is a pistil with three distinct portions and it can be compound in structure. Pistils are the female reproductive organs, including the ovary. Stigmas are the tips that accept the pollen. The style extends between the stigma and the ovary. A compound or segmented gynoecium is made up of carpels. Compound pistils have radially segmented stigma/style/ovary making them polycarpellate. Apples are pentacarpellate.3- The ovary generates the ovule (female gamatophyte) that is never released but remains inside the enclosing ovary. Inside the ovule is the gametophyte's archegonium that produces ova (eggs).4- the ovary, once the ova inside the ovules are fertilized, matures to become a fruit.


Why are some floweres brightly colored and some not?

some flowers use photosinthises.some do not. the ones using photosinthises are probible gunu be brightly colored. Some flowers are brightly coloured to attract insects for pollination. Usually insect pollinated flowers are brightly coloured. Some flowers are not brightly coloured because they are wind pollinated, so they do not need to attract insects. In wind pollinated flowers, the stamens hang down, so the wind can carry the pollen grains. The number of stamens present in wind pollinated are more than the ones in an insect pollinated flower.


What is the definition of flower?

1. A blossom; the part of a plant that produces the seed. A flower is a shortened branch with modified leaves called petals. In botanical use, a flower consists normally of pistil, stamens, corolla, and calyx in regular series, any one or more of which may be absent. Flowers are often beautifully colored or shaped. Bees gather nectar from flowers. The earliest known flowers were relatively simple, with small carpels, simple stamens, and flat or cup-shaped receptacles (Fred W. Emerson). 2. A plant grown for its blossoms: Her hobby is raising flowers. 3 Any one of several kinds of reproductive structures in lower plants, such as the mosses. 4 Figurative. the finest part: the flower of the country's youth.
