A flower is also known as a bloom or a blossom. They are like bursts of laughter from the Earth. Flowers are complex; they are made up of vegetative organs -sepals that enclose and protect the developing flower , petals that attract pollinators as well as reproductive organs that produce gametophytes ,which in flowering plants produce gametes. The male gametophytes that produce sperm , are enclosed within pollen grains produced in the anthers.Most flowering plants are dependent upon animals, such as bees, moths, and butterflies to transfer their pollen betweeen different flowers.

The name rose is derived from Latin rosa which was perhaps borrowed from Oscan, Greek, and Persian. In botanical terms , the leaves are borne alternately on the stem. In most species of the rose flower , they measure 5-15 centimetres ( 2.0 to 5.9 in) long pinnate, with (3–) 5–9 (−13) leaflets and basal stipules; the leaflets usually have a serrated margin, and often a few small prickles on the underside of the stem.
