Stamen and Stigma on Flowering Cannas

On flowering cannas another part is the Stamen. Different varieties of cannas have different shaped and sized stamens, but one thing they all do is curl backwards, some of them will curl and loop quite tight while others will simply just arch only a little bit backwards.

Attached to the stamen is the anther, the anthers job is to which carry’s the pollen and a stigma which receives the pollen at its tip. Stamens are usually more brightly coloured than the staminodes, often they are striped or spotted, and some are brushed with paler colours while others appear as a solid block of colour.
