Types of Flower

We will discuss here about the types of flower.
Flowers are of two types. They are complete flower and incomplete flower.

Complete flower: The flower consisting of all four parts ‘% i.e., calyx, corolla, androecium and gynoecium, is known as complete flower.

Thom-apple (Datura), China-rose (Hibiscus), etc. are the examples of complete flowers.

Incomplete flower: The flowers, which are lacking in atleast one of the four floral parts are called incomplete flowers.

The flower with calyx, corolla and androecium is an incomplete male flower whereas, a flower having gynoecium instead of androecium along with calyx and corolla is called incomplete female flower.

Gourd, bottle-gourd, etc. are the examples of plants that bear incomplete flower.
