This tulip has many petals (yellow)

A petal is the coloured part of a flower. They often bring insects and birds to the flowers to help them pollinate. They are made up of cellulose and other organic matter. Another word for a petal is corolla.

The petals often have bright colors, and can also have a scent to attract animals to it.
