Comparison of two florets from a compound flower (The Common Daisy; Bellis perennis). Florets from the border of the influorescence (at left) have developped a special morphology with five long clean and seamlessly adnate white sepals, in order to attract pollinators, whereas florets from the center (at right) have totally reduced sepals. Central florets are densely packed and mainly serve to increase pollen- and seed production.
