Transcript: Read Me!!! Read please! Open up! Watch me! Let's go Roses Welcome to Roses!!! By Sophie Huang Let's start with this Parts of a Rose The rose plant has two main parts to it. The first part is the Pistil The female part of a rose Stigma: The stigma is a sticky bulb in the center of the plant. Pollen grains land on the stigma and start the fertilization process. Style: The style is a long tube that holds up the stigma. Ovary: The ovary is usually at the bottom of a flower. The ovary has the seeds that will turn into fruit that we eat. The second part of the rose is the Stamen Anther: The Anther is one part of the Stamen. The Anther is a yellow, pouch-looking that holds the pollen grains. It is usually on top of a long stalk. Filament: The Filament is the long stalk that supports the Anther. Some other parts are... Petals: The petals are the pretty, colorful parts of a flower. The petals attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies to the flower. The petals of a flower are usually the reason that we buy flowers. Sepals: The sepals are the little green leaves on the outside of the flower bud that is at the base of the flower. sepals help protect the bud before it blooms. Want to learn some more? Kinds of Roses Roses are separated into three different groups, according to how they were grown. The three different types are; Bush, Climbing and Shrub. Most present-day roses are descendants of eight different types of Asian and European rose species. The different flower colors and forms are because of breeding and hybridizing that began in the 1800’s. Roses are considered the most popular garden flower. The first type is.... Shrub Roses are a group of wild roses, hybrids and cultivars which grow in big groups with little support and care. Many have good textured flower petals and parts which is good for hedges and screen plantings. Special species of Shrub Roses and Old-Fashioned Roses usually only bloom once a season. Old-Fashioned Roses were used in colonial gardens for their nice smells and fragrances. Those flowers do not look like the modern roses we have today. Shrub roses usually bloom 6-8 weeks after their planted like Hybrid Teas. They grow best if they get 6 hours of sun a day. The second type..... Climbing Roses are vigorous plants that have long canes that require support. Climbing Roses can be put on a trellis or a fence. Canes can be from 5 to 20+ feet tall depending on how they are supported. Some are placed in and some grow by themselves. Climbing Roses are then divided in to smaller groups depending on how they are grown and how they flower. Climbing roses are different from shrub and bush roses is because climbing roses grow can be grown on a trellis or fence. Climbing roses usually don’t have a very large bloom the first season, but have a bigger bloom the second year. The last type... Bush roses primarily have their flowers at the top of their plant support themselves. Bush roses range from a few inches to six feet! Bush roses are then put into more little groups considering their flowering and growth habits. Bush roses are different from the climbing and shrub roses because bush roses aren’t put on a fence or trellis and because they need more care than shrub roses. Another type of Bush Rose.... Hybrid Teas are a very colorful and exquisite type of rose. Most flower shops and florists sell Hybrid teas. Hybrid teas are tall and straight. The hybrid teas flower singly on long stems and the hybrid tea buds are just as beautiful as the opened flowers. Hybrid teas can grow 2 1/2 to 6 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide. Hybrid teas bloom 6-8 weeks after planted. Now, let's see what makes a rose so beautiful Q: How do roses get their color? A: The color comes from pigments called anthocyanins. The anthocyanins allow the flower to give itself colors. Some colors also come from the parent flowers. Roses can have these colors: Chrome Yellow Yellow Gold Apricot Pale Apricot Primrose Buff Shell Pink Salmon Copper Orange Vermillion Coral Pink Candy Pink Pale Pink White Lilac Rose Scarlet Mauve Cerise Red Crimson Purple. here are some seeds Spores What's a spore??? A spore is a kind of like a seed, but without as much nutrients. Spores can be carried by wind or water and can survive a long time period. Spores are not very healthy for roses because they could carry a disease that would give roses black spots. The fungus spores give the roses the disease. why does a rose grow back again and again and again every year? Reproduction and Pollen Here is how it works... Roses have pollen sacks in them. The colors of the petals attract bees, butterflies and other animals to the flower. Animals and insects such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds carry pollen from one flower to another. Most pollen is yellow, but some plants have blue, black, white or red pollen. The pollen is distributed in the Stigma of a flower (the Stigma is the female part). The seeds are then produced by the pollen grains growing tubes to

Malawi – Climate/Agriculture Trading partners: South Africa, Zambia, China, US Challenges: · shortage of qualified primary school teachers; · inadequate physical infrastructure; · poor retention of girls mainly from standard five to eight; · high disease burden due to HIV and AIDS consequently leading to absenteeism especially among girls who take care of the sick; and · poor participation of school committees and their communities in school management. · Poverty levels are high in rural areas. 1 Doctor per 50,000 people Hinders the ability to deliver medical services to people in need Reason: Emigration Lack of access to education Aggravated by AIDS > 4 nurses are lost each month This also affects other sectors: Government Business Farmers Human Resources HIV/AIDS - Contemporary GDP: US $14.58 billion (2012 est.)
