There are many types of lilies and lilylike flowers. The systems are characterized by flashy, exotic blooms in bright colors and sweet scents. Lilies come from bulbs and flower in the spring and summer, when the temperatures are warm and full sun is available. All flowers have complex reproductive systems whose purpose is to produce an ovary and pollen. The ovary must be pollinated to produce for the plant to seed. Lilies have obvious reproductive parts and bright yellow pollen, which is carried on the stamens. The stamp is a decorative thickened portion attaches to the ovary and is a channel for the transmission of pollen.
Monocots have their main flower parts in groups of three. Lily flowers have three sets of petals and three sepals, whose stamp is a three-pointed organ and the stamens are a multiple of three. Dicots are the other type of flower, which are equally divided into two. The sepals and petals are so similar that they appear only six petals. Sepals are the outer petals and the true petals appear toward the center of the plant. There are 3,700 species of lily and each of them is composed of parts in threes.
Stamens, anthers sometimes, the pollen-producing organs of a flower. Lilies' stamens are long, thread-like organs in the middle of the flowers. Stamens an angled piece at the end which is perpendicular to the main part of the stamen. Stamens are the male reproductive organs of flowers. Pollen grains are quite large yellow lily species and saffron. The lily is attractive for many pollinating insects that carry the pollen on the stamp of sensitive species.
The stylus is a hollow tube in the center of the flower with a three-part stigma. These are the entry points for the pollen. Pistils are the female reproductive organs. The stylus has called an elongated stem, style. The style combines the stamp on the ovaries. The crown of the stamp is the stigma. Once pollen enters the stigma it travels to the style of the ovary. A lily is considered a complete flower because it has the part of both sexes.
Other Lily Parts
Petals are the outer layer of the flower and their bright color and fragrance are designed to attract insects that will help in pollination. The lily petals are the external structures that once housed and protected the lily bud. Named as they turn into petals they are tepals. Lilies parallel veins on their leaves that characterize them. Lilies have several subfamilies, such as asparagus, which have slightly different characteristics. Botanists continue to try to distinguish between these families to small differences in the structure of the flower base.
