Full Answer

More than 200 varieties of this plant are available, but all of them have some parts in common. Every variety of gumamela has a stamen and pistil, which are the male and female sex organs. The stamen contains a filament and two anthers that release pollen, and the pistil contains the ovary and other reproductive organs. At the top of the pistil sits the stigma, which is the site of pollen collection. The gumamela also has a calyx and a corolla. The calyx is the green structure that produces buds. The colorful part of the flower, which attracts insects, is the corolla.
