Flower Petals

The petal absorbs energy from the sun and uses it to produce sugar. Solar Energy is converted into Chemical Energy!


The xylem of the stem transports the water from the flower and leaves. The phloem transports the sugar throughout the flower.


Leaves are green because they contain chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs red and blue light, but reflects green light! The leaf cells make sugar out of H20 and carbon dioxide.


Water is absorbed through the roots. The roots also take minerals and nutrients from the soil. The xylem transports the water from the roots.
