Plant Terms


Deciduous

  • Definition: To shed leaves during a certain season of the year

  • Examples: Various dogwood and maple trees

In this picture you can see a maple tree with its leaves falling off during the fall.


Perennial

  • Definition: a plant that will bloom for a certain period of time, die and grow back the next year around the same time

  • Examples: Iris Flowers, Daylilies, and Ornamental grass

Here is a picture of an Iris Flower in full bloom.


Annual

  • Definition: A plant that usually has only a one year life cycle

  • Annuals also come in various colors.

  • Examples: Petunias, Daisies, and Geraniums

This is a picture of purple petunias


Conifer

  • Definition: They are a non-flowering plant that grow cones instead of flowers, they are often wrongly defined as evergreens.

  • Examples: Pine, Fir, and Cedar

I know this is a conifer’s branch because of the pine cones that are attached


Diagram of Plant Parts


Stigma

  • Definition: The part of the pistil that receives pollen

The stigma is circled in green on the pictures below

Real Plant


Stamen

  • The pollen-producing male organ of a flower/plant that has an anther and a filament

The diagram shows where the anther and the filament are on the stamen


Pollen

  • Definition: A mass of microspores in a seed plant usually appearing as a fine dust. It’s common to be allergic to pollen.


What does pollen look like????


Anther

  • Definition: The part of stamen that holds and produces pollen

This diagram shows where the anther is on a flower


Ovary

  • Definition: The part of the pistil that holds the ovules (seeds).

These are the different ways an ovary can be inside a plant.


Petal

  • Definition: The part of a flower used to attract pollinators (birds, bees etc). They are usually brightly colored and have sweet scents.

Orange Petals are pictured here
