Orange Hawkweed Male and Female Flowers
(Hawkweed, Orange - 02a) From our own observations of this beautiful wildflower, it appears that the outer ray flowers are male and the inner flowers are female. Note that the outer flowers of the orange hawkweed have curled stamens with pollen grains, and that the inner flowers have Y-shaped pistils. Also note that each flower has two petals, a longer bottom one and a shorter upper one, with the stamen or pistil protruding out from between them.
