PISTIL

The pistil is the term for the central female reproductive organ around which the other flower parts are arranged - the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is the sticky receptacle for the pollen, often swollen and flared in many plants.. The style supports the stigma and is tube-like, leading to the ovary where the seeds develop.
