Plants are green because of a pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs all colors of visible light except for green, which is reflected. Thus, the reflection of the green part of visible light is what causes plant... More »

Leaves appear green because of the chlorophyll they contain. Chlorophyll is the part of the leaf that uses carbon dioxide, sunlight and water to produce sugar. A leaf with plenty of chlorophyll masks other pigment colors... More »

Chlorophyll, a type of pigment, makes leaves look green because it reflects light that falls in the green part of the visible light spectrum while absorbing other wavelengths of light. Chlorophyll molecules are classifie... More »
