Earth Children love…Flowers!
Most flowering plants reproductive systems have both male and female parts. It is important to note that they are not sentient, that is to say that they do not have a nervous system or brain and therefore do not have any awareness of themselves and do not feel pain!
Male parts of a flower produce the pollen. Each grain contains a male gamete that can fertilize the female ovule, to which pollen is transported by the wind, insects, or other animals. Self-pollination happens in flowers where the stamen and carpel mature at the same time, and are positioned so that the pollen can land on the flower’s stigma. Many flowers have evolved to be attractive to animals, so as to cause them to be vectors for the transfer of pollen.
Plants help to remove pollutants from the air – during the process of photosynthesis, the flower’s leaves absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Additionally, planting flowers can help improve soil quality and are of course vital to help the bumblebees and other tiny creatures survive. Flowers are not to be underestimated for the incredible role that they play in our ecosystem.
Flowers have long been admired and used by humans to bring beauty to their environment and also as objects of romance, ritual, religion, medicine and as a source of food.
Here are our favourite flower facts!
- Tulip bulbs were more valuable than gold in Holland in the 1600s, hundreds of years ago.
- When Vikings invaded Scotland, they were slowed by patches of wild thistle, allowing the Scots time to escape. Because of this, the wild thistle was named Scotland’s national flower.
- Scientists discovered the world’s oldest flower in 2002, in northeast China. The flower, named Archaefructus Sinensis, bloomed around 125 million years ago and resembles a water lily.
- Foxglove is an old English name, derived from the belief that foxes slipped their feet into the leaves of the plant to sneak up on prey.
- Sunflowers move throughout the day in response to the movement of the sun from east to west.
- Moon flowers bloom only at night, closing during the day.
- Dandelions might seem like weeds, but the flowers and leaves are a good source of vitamins A and C, iron, calcium and potassium. One cup of dandelion greens provides 7,000-13,000 I.U. of vitamin A. Dandelions will often thrive in soil where other flowers will not and by doing so they replenish the soil with vital nutrients and restore ecosystems where other plants would not be able to. These hardy plants get negative press!
- Blue cohosh, also known as squaw root or papoose root, was used by Native American women to ensure easy labour and childbirth.
So, the next time you walk through a flower garden, take a minute to consider the individual plants growing there. Every flower has qualities and attributes worth admiring
