What is the importance of flowers in our life? Flowers not only add color, texture, and biodiversity to gardens and environments, they are also an important structure for plants and an essential food source for many organisms. Flowers are an important means of attracting pollen substances to plants, and plants need to produce seeds, the reproductive structures that allow seeds to exist for generations. Flowers can also protect growing seeds and successfully pass genetic material to the next generation. Flowering plants are called angiosperms and are a group that has evolved to include a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours
For instance, some flowers produce two types of pollen: one for pollination, and one to feed pollinators. Other flowers have intricate designs on their petals called nectar guides to help pollinators find the pollen within their flowers. The color, shape and fragrance of most flowers has evolved over thousands of years to benefit both the plant species and the pollinators that visit that flower.
