The pollen-containing organ in a rose is an example of a stamen.
A stamen is opposite each sepal, and in the centre of the flower is the rudiment of a pistil.
It sometimes happens that a single stamen is longer than all the rest.
The function of the stamen is the development and distribution of the pollen.
The male germ cells, called pollen, are produced in a part of the flower called the stamen.
With a small, sharp, pointed knife remove the stamen from each of the flowers.
