Azalea Flowers with Long Filaments and Styles

Azalea Flowers with Long Filaments and Styles

Azalea flowers with long filaments and styles extending from their centers. The difference between the filaments and styles is that the filaments have an orange-colored tip called an anther while the styles have a green-colored tip called a stigma. The stigma receives pollen while the anther produces it. This photo was taken at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
