phygeliusflocfunfarewinefunnelshape1Tubular, Lipped and Strap Flower Elaborated Shape

Many radially symetretrical flowers are tubular, opening at the mouth to a ring of lobes that are often petal-like. Flowers that are symetrical in only one plane, as is the case with a large number that are lipped, usually have intriguing shapes, the origin of which is a snug adaptation to a particular pollinator.

raouliafloaustralis1Tubular - A flower with a long, thin, straight-sided tube formed of united petals, often separating at the mouth into a flared shape (Raoulia australis).

 

Another example is a Kniphofia hybrid.

 

 

 

prunellaflograndiflora1Lipped (Labiate) - A flower divided into an upper 'hood' and a lower flat or pouched lip (Prunella grandiflora), typical of members of the Deadnettle/Mint Family (Lamiaceae).

 

Another example is Salvia texensis.

 

 

Strap-shaped (Ligulate) - A flower with one large, long, thin petal, typical of ray-florets of the Aster/Daisy Family (Asteraceae). These look like single petals but are all individual flowers, each one capable of producing its own seed. An example is Cosmos bipinnatus - see photo from Higgledy Garden showing the individual petals acting as part of the ray-floret, with their cultivation details.
