Underground flowers in violets

Violets have two kinds of flowers. Some of their flowers grow aboveground, and others, like the ones shown here, live out their life cycle under the surface. These cleistogamous flowers are self-fertilizing. This kind of flower is found in many species, but they contribute to the potential weediness of violets in designed landscapes. Between spreading vegetatively and their cleistogamous flowers, violets can be an unwanted pest in the garden. For more scientific literature on cleistogamous flowers see: Madge, M. A. P. 1929. Spermatogenesis and fertilization in the cleistogamous flower of viola odorata. Annals of Botany 43: 545-577.

Pollen is the male reproductive spore of plants. Flowers produce pollen to fertilize other flowers. But for this to happen, pollen must get from the flower of one plant to fertilize the flower of another plant. How does it happen? As everyone knows, bees do the work, depositing pollen from flower to flower. When bees visit flowers, they fertilize them by spreading the pollen that they collected from previous plants. This simple act, repeated over and over again, becomes the force that re-starts the life cycle of our planet every spring. It is the genesis of the food chain.
