Caption: Coloured light micrograph of a stained cross section of a young bud of German iris (Iris germanica) showing three central petals, known as standards. The outer structures, which resemble petals, are sepals referred to as falls. These falls have a central beard which acts as a landing marker for insects. The anthers are directly above the beard. The female parts of the flower, known as the style arms, are located above the sepals. Magnification: x22 at 10cm wide.
