Believe it or not, but the purpose of a flower?s pretty petals is to help the flower reproduce and make more flowers! They rely on critters like insects and butterflies to transfer their pollen from one to another, which is what makes it possible for the flowers to reproduce. The colour of a flower?s petals often helps it to appeal to the bugs or small birds that are most helpful to it, while the shape of the petals often serves the animal or insect?s shape and size.
