noun, plural: perfect flowers

A flower with male and female reproductive parts


Flowers may be described as either perfect or imperfect based on the presence of plant sexual reproductive structures. A perfect flower is one in which both male and female reproductive structures are present. Both androecium (whorl of stamens) and gynoecium (whorl of carpels or pistil) are located on the same flower.

Roses are perfect flowers.
