Examples of flowers with a hairy calyx
Basic flower anatomy
A flower consists of a number of parts inserted on the tip of a shoot.
This tip is called the axis or receptacle of the flower.
On the outside is a circle or whorl of sepals, collectively called the calyx.
The sepals protect the flower bud and are usually small greenish leaves,
although in some flowers they may be coloured and look like petals,
for example the Wood Anemone.
Within the calyx is a collection of petals, collectively known as the corolla,
which are often brightly coloured to attract insects for pollination.
