Petals - important for attracting insects and other pollinators (80 mm)
Carpel - a stalk (style) with an ovary at the base and stigma at the tip (126 mm)
Style - the stalk of the carpel (100 mm)
Stigma - sticky tip that traps pollen (6 mm)
Ovary - protective chamber containing ovules (20 mm)
Stamen - consists of a filament bearing an anther (6 mm)
Anther - a sac in which pollen grains develop ( < 1 mm)
