Still other leaves have become bright and showy, like flower petals; Dogwood (Cornus florida) is a familiar example. The white “petals” actually are modified leaves that grow around the cluster of nondescript flowers. And finally, leaves can protect the plant by producing poisonous chemicals or stinging hairs. Flowers exist to perform the task of reproduction, and whether large or small, showy or dull, all flowers carry on this process.
