A leaf or division of the calyx.
One of the three outer parts of an orchid flower, one of which is usually topmost and known as the dorsal, the other two lower sepals being known as the laterals.
n. (Fr. sepale separatus, separate; pelatum, petal) any of the leaf divisions of the calyx. When a calyx consists of but one part, it is said to be monosepalous; when of two parts, it is said to be disepalous; when of a variable and indefinite number of parts, it is said to be polysepalous; and when the parts are more or less united, it is said to be gamosepalous.
A calyx member or segment; a unit of the calyx.
A single organ of the calyx. A flower part formed from a modified leaf structure.
One of the outer set of floral leaves or calyx, usually green
The outer green parts of the base of the the flower. They protect the flower bud before it opens. Inside the sepals are the colored petals.
a part of the calyx that is usually green
a single unit of the calyx; the lowermost whorl of flower parts.
Sepals are components of the calyx. Located at the base of the flower, these modified leaves usually function as protection for the petals while in bud stage. Occasionally, sepals will be colored, but they are usually green.
green leaf-like structures that cover a bud and later open up to reveal the petals of a flower
Green, leaflike structure that encloses and protects the unopened flower bud.
Modified leaves forming the outer floral envelope.
usually green, these modified outer leaves protect the flower's petals and reproductive parts.
Component part of the calyx; typically green but sometimes enlarged and brightly colored.
(see´ pul) • One of the outermost structures of the flower, usually protective in function and enclosing the rest of the flower in the bud stage.
A specialised leaf found in flowering plants. Sepals protect a flower bud as it grows and are usually green and often hairy. When the flower is ready to open, the sepals either fall off to reveal the flower, or dehydrate enough to curl back, exposing the flower.
a leaf-like floral organ that protects the unopened flower bud
The outermost floral parts, often serving a protective role for flowers in the bud.
The individual divisions of the calyx (outer floral envelope).
An outer whorl of leaflike structures that enclose the flower in the bud stage.
one of the green parts that form the calyx of a flower
a tepal (a segment) of the calyx of a flower
One division of the calyx.
An individual leaf-like segment of the calyx of a flower.
Small flower structure below the outermost whorl of petals.
Part of the calyx, usually bractlike. (eg: in Magnolia soulangiana)
Leaf-like structure which covers the flower bud before it opens
Member of the outermost set of flower leaves, usually greenish.
A small modified leaf near the edge of the flower.
An individual element of the calyx.
One of the separate parts of the flower forming the calyx.
The outermost ring of floral structures that are around the petals and are usually green.
One of the outer, protective "petals" of a flower.
a whorl of a flower; sepals often resemble reduced leaves and function in the protection of the bud; sepals may be modified to function more like a petal
One of the outermost series of flower parts, arranged in a ring outside the petals, and usually green and leaflike.
One of the individual flower parts of the calyx; usually green.
the outer perianth whorl of a flower which in eucalypts may become fused into a single structure, the outer operculum
single segment of calyx, often green, but may be colored
A structure on the outermost part of a flower, appearing like a small leaf or a petal. A group of sepals enclose the developing flower bud and later open when the flower is mature.
Sépale Kelchblatt, n Sépalo One of the segments which make up the calyx of a flower, the outer whorl or the perianth, often protecting the bud.
One of the individual, modified leaves of a calyx and surrounding a plant's reproductive organs.
a single segment of the calyx, usually green.
A whorl of modified leaves in angiosperms that encloses and protects the flower bud before it opens.
A member of the calyx (click here to see flower structure)
The leaf-like structure enclosing a flower bud, collectively called the calyx.
A sterile, modified leaf that is a single "unit" of the calyx. Sepals are frequently green and inconspicuous.
an individual leaf that is part of the outer floral leaves, usually greenish
a member of the (usually green) outer whorl of non-fertile parts surrounding the fertile organs of a flower.
The outer segments of an Orchid flower
one of the often green part of the calyx.
a part of the outer set of leaf-like flower partsthe, generally green.
A leaf or segment of the calyx.
free segment of the calyx.
an individual leaf of the calyx, the outer whorl of the perianth. Usually green.
One of the outer perianth segments, sometimes similar to a petal (e.g. tulips) but often green and leaf like
Lower flower part, the calyx.
One of two or more parts of the calyx, usually green and pointed but may be petal-like and of any colour.
The outermost structures of a flower. More info
One of the divisions of the calyx.
A member of the outer series of flower parts (calyx); usually green.
These modified leaves act as temporary protective scales around the unopened flower bud. The sepals make up the calyx and are sometimes shed with the opening of the flower's corolla but can also curl backward behind the first whorl of petals.
One of the outermost circle of modified leaves surrounding the reproductive organs of a flower; usually green. Daylilies have colored sepals.
One of the segments of the calyx, typically green or greenish and leafy in texture.
The sepals are small leaves located directly under a flower - they are the outermost part of a flower. Collectively, the sepals are called the calyx.
A sepal is a part of the flower of angiosperms or flower plants. Sepals in a "typical" flower are green and lie under the more conspicuous petals. As a collective unit the sepals are called the calyx of a flower.
