What even are flowers?

  A flower is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants. Flowers produce gametophytes. The "male" gametophyte, which produces non-motile sperm, is enclosed within pollen grains, the "female" gametophyte is contained within the ovule. Some flowers may self-pollinate, producing seed using pollen from the same flower or a different flower of the same plant, but most flowering plants depend on animals, such as bees, moths, and butterflies, to transfer their pollen between different flowers, and have evolved to attract these pollinators in various ways, such as being brightly colored, conspicuous petals, attractive scents, and the production of nectar (a food source for pollinators). In this way, many flowering plants have co-evolved with pollinators to be mutually dependent on services they provide to one another in the plant's case, a means of reproduction and   in the pollinator's case, a source of food. After fertilization, the ovary of the flower develops into fruit containing seeds. Flowers have long been appreciated by humans for their beauty and pleasant scents, and also hold cultural significance as religious, ritual, or symbolic objects, or sources of medicine and food.
