Parts Of A Flowering Plant




The leaves are the essential food producers for the entire plant. The nutrients and minerals are absorbed by the roots and then carried to the leaves by the stem. The leaves then use the chlorophyll, which is the green pigment in the leaves, and a process called photosynthesis to use the energy from sunlight to create a glucose that feeds the plant. The leaves also release oxygen into the air, which animals need.

Roots help the plant to stand up straight by gripping into the soil. Roots also absorb water and minerals from the soil. Roots are the first part of the plant to develop and nothing else in the plant can develop without them.

While the roots absorb the minerals and moisture from the soil, the stem carries those minerals and water up to the top of the plant. Some may be flexible while some will be fixed and even hard, like a tree trunk. The stem is one of the hardest working parts of the plant.

Flowers are needed for reproduction. Pollination can occur by wind, birds or animals. Inside the petals are the male and female parts of the flower. The male reproductive organs are called the stamen and are made up of the anther and filament. The female reproductive organs are the pistil and include the stigma, style and ovary.
