Tulip Flower
 
Tulip Flower

The inside of a tulip flower, with threefold symmetry.

The six stamens, the male, pollen-producing parts, are arranged in a circle, with the female part, called the pistil, in the center. You can see the green three-part stigma at the top of the pistil; that's what catches pollen.

Genus Tulipa
