Caption: Macrophotograph of a cross-section through the ovary of a hyacinth flower, Hyacinthus orientalis, showing the ovules. Pollen brushed onto the rough- surfaced stigma by visiting insects produces pollen tubes. These grow down the short style into the ovary. Male gametes pass down the pollen tubes to the ovules (the white, rounded structures seen within the ovary). The fertilised ovules develop into seeds. Hyacinths can also reproduce asexually, by vegetative propagation.
