We have had rain every day for weeks so my sample is staining the paper. Good for berries but sad for flowers and veggies. Attached are three photos of iris growing along our lake front. The ovary appears to have three open carpel compartments, with axial placentation. The eggs line up like seeds in a pepper. If you look closely at the base of the petals, you can see two of the three stamens. I saw no styles in two specimens I cut open.
Steffi, is there a trick to pressing fleshy plant parts and juicy stems?
