The pistil is typically in the center section of a flower. At the top is the sticky stigma for collecting pollen, which is essential for fertilization. At the end of the style is the ovary, which contains ovules ��� the egg cells. Once a plant is fertilized, the ovary develops into fruit, while the ovules become seeds.
The male parts of a flowering plant's reproductive system are the stamens. These typically encircle the pistil. A stamen's long filament is topped by an anther, which is where pollen is produced.Learn more about Botany
