How to Label the Parts of a Tulip Flower. Labeling the parts of a flower, such as a tulip, is easy when you see how each part looks. Each element of a flower performs a special function so that the flower can bloom and sometimes reproduce.

Labeling the parts of a flower, such as a tulip, is easy when you see how each part looks. Each element of a flower performs a special function so that the flower can bloom and sometimes reproduce.
Step 1
Look at the whole flower. The long, green stem from which the tulip grows is the stalk. The leaves are green, long and pointed. The petals, forming a cup at the top, come in nearly every color imaginable.
Step 2
At the base of the blossom are almond-shaped mini-leaves that can be green or splashed with the color of the blossom. These are sepals, which protect the flower when it is a bud.
Step 3
Inside the flower is a small, stemlike piece, the pistol, from which pollen travels. At the base of this part is a bulbous shape, or ovary, where pollen is produced. The very top part of the pistol is called the stigma, which traps the pollen until it is ready to be released.
Step 4
Inside the flower are also "stems" called stamen. The bulbous top part of the stamen is called the anther. This is the part of the flower to which bees are attracted. Pollen is gathered here.
