The Q&A Archives: Flower Reproduction

Question: How do flowers reproduce? Royce Irvin Prairie Farm, WI

Answer: The flower itself is the sexual part of the plant. Pollen produced by the stamen (male) is transferred to the pistil (female). This is called pollination. Wind or insects help in the transfer from one flower to another. The pollen then proceeds to fertilize the egg within the female ovary at the base of the pistil. The egg grows into a seed. So flowers reproduce via seeds. End of biology lesson for the day! Have Fun.
