ABSTRACT
Flowering Plant, any plant that produces flowers. Flowers contain the reproductive organs of the plant. The most familiar flowers are showy, such as those of roses and tulips. However, many flowering plants, such as grasses, have inconspicuous flowers. Flowering plants include garden flowers; wildflowers; flowering shrubs and trees; and grasses and sedges. The botanical term for a flowering plant is angiosperm. In common usage, many flowering plants, especially garden flowers and wildflowers, are referred to simply as flowers.
