This beautiful Lily shows off to particular perfection the parts of flowers. To see these best look at the bloom on the left. The green tube, (style) with the brown cushion on the end (stigma) is where the pollen is deposited by an insect or wind to fertilise the plant in the ovaries at the bottom of the bloom, not visible here, where the seed is then produced. From the end of the white tubes (filaments) brown crescent shape antlers, containing pollen hang. Of course the petals are the coloured part. Some plants are self pollinating, while others require pollen form another plant to produce seed.
