Images: Virtual Flower Dissections, by John Riley and Ben Montgomery

Looking for images of dissected flowers that you can turn 360 degrees to understand how flowers are constructed?  Look no more.  John Riley and Benjamin R. Montgomery at University of South Carolina Upstate provides this for eight species so far on this web site.

The species are:

Amaryllidaceae: Narcissus (daffodil)

Fabaceae: Phaseolus vulgaris (pole bean)

Linaceae: Linum rigidum (stiff flax)

Magnoliaceae: Magnolia grandiflora (southern magnolia)

Nymphaeaceae: Nymphaea odorata (water lily)

Passifloraceae: Passiflora incarnata (maypop)

Rosaceae: Fragaria (strawberry)

Xanthorrhoeaceae: Hemerocallis (daylily)

Thanks John and Ben for sharing!
