Life cycle of a Lily Flower

Seeds:

The life cycle of a lily flower begins with a single seed. Once mature, the plant reproduces by growing a flower, which is the sexual part of the plant that produces seeds.

Male Sex Organs:

The male sex organ is called the Anther, and there are several in each lily flower.

Female Sex Organs:

THe female portions of the flower are called the stigma, pistil and ovule. The ovule contains the unfertilized ova of the plant.

Pollination:

Pollination is accomplished when pollen grains, the male gametes of the plant are transferred to the stigma by an insect or other physical action

Fertilization:

The pollen grains come in contact with the stigma and stick to it. Pollen travels down a path called a pollen tube through the pistil into the ovule to fertilize the ova.

Seed Growth:

Seeds form in the lily flower. As the seeds mature, the flower dies, and a seed pod grows. The pod eventually releases its seeds.

I love lilies because..

Lilies are really a just flat out beautiful flower. I've always found them dashing! They can always put you in a better mood when you've had a rather horrible day! I love lilies because i got a dozen on valentines day from somebody I love, so yes these flowers mean a lot to me!
