- Description: Detailed view of a pink camellia flower. Pictured here are the stamen, or the male organ of the flower. The stalks are called "filaments" and at the end of each filament are "anthers," which hold the pollen sacs, or "microsporangia." The female organ of the flower is called the "pistil." At the top of the pistil is the "stigma," which is the part of the flower that collects pollen. Pollination occurs when bees transfer pollen from flowers while gathering nectar from another.
