ABSTRACT
This article provides information on simple and compound flowers. Simple flowers have many petals with a similar shape. But after millions of years, flowers have changed and newer species exist with complex structures. An example of a compound flower is the sunflower family of Asteraceae. Most members of this flower have a daisy type flower.
