A flower is the reproductive part of a plant, which later develops into a fruit and therefore paves the way for the plant to continue its ecological evolution over the years. Considering the very vitality of this part of the plant, flowers are therefore one of the most important and fascinating aspects of study in the subject of botany.

Through constant research and study, botanists have concluded that a flower has four structural parts, namely the calyx, the corolla, the stamen and the pistil. The calyx is further divided into smaller parts called sepals, which are smaller petals and are normally green in colour.

The second part of the flower that is called the corolla is the most colourful and attractive part of the flower and its function is to attract insects. It is made up of petals, which have bright and vibrant colours of all kinds and play a great part in alluring insects to drop pollens.

The third part of the flower is the stamen, which is further divided into the anther (which is the top part of the stamen and has a sticking quality which sticks pollen grains to its surface) and the filament, which is the longer part of the stamen, like a thin tube-like structure.

Last but definitely not the least, the pistil is the most important part of the flower and is further divided into the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is the upper part of the pistil, the style is the middle part and the ovary is the downward and the more swollen part of the pistil where the actual reproduction takes place.

The most advanced plants on Earth are the flowering plants. We look at them everyday in our gardens, parks, or road side verges but probably never realise just how complex plants are.

The leaves of a plant are one of its most important structures. These are the sites where photosynthesis occurs. This biochemical process turns the energy from sunlight into food and all life on Earth depends on it as the basis for every food chain. The leaves are green because they contain the green pigment chlorophyll in tiny organelles called chloroplasts. Chlorophyll accepts photons of light energy during photosynthesis.

The roots of a plant anchor it in the ground and take in water and essential minerals from the soil. Roots have a large surface area for absorption. From the roots, the stem supports the plant in the air, acting as a support for the leaves and flowers. Flowers are the reproductive structures of the plant.

I think the most important part of the plant would be the water and the stem because the water helps it grow and the stem is the one that gives the plant life
