Flowering plants, or angiosperms, like the one in the photograph, are almost always hermaphrodites. A hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs. Plants that are hermaphroditic are called monoecious, which means that they are bisexual. The male parts of the flower are called (in a group) the stamen and consist of the anther and the filament. The female parts of the flower are called (in a group) the pistil and consist of the stigma, the style and the ovary.
