The Perianth

The Perianth

Petals are modified leaves that surround the reproductive parts of flowers, They are often brightly colored to attract pollinators (as insects), together all of the petals of a flower are called corolla. Petals are usually accompanied by another set of modified leaves called sepals, that collectively form the calyx and lie just beneath the corolla. The calyx and the corolla together make up the perianth when the petals and sepals of a flower are difficult to be distinguished, they are collectively called tepals as in most monocot plants onion and Tulipa.
