Most flowering plants have the ability to reproduce through both sexual and asexual reproduction. The flowers pictured above have both male and female parts. It has a stamen, which is the male portion of the flower, and consists of the anther, which produces the pollen, and the filament, which is the hairy stalk that the anther sits on top of. The pistil is the female part of the flower, which consists of the stigma, which captures the pollen, and the style and ovary. Because of the flower having both types of reproductive organs, they are able to reproduce asexually when its pollen makes it to the same flower’s stigma. This ability helps plants with genetic mutations to survive and reproduce, creating new species.
