Why are flowers brightly colored and scented?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why are flowers brightly colored and scented?       
Why are flowers brightly colored and scented? Flowers are colored and perfumed to attract insects, which play an important part in pollinating them. Some plants also produce a sugary liquid called nectar, which bees feed on.

Bees are attracted to the color and scent of a flower.They feed on the nectar in the flower and gather pollen, which they store in sacs on their legs to take back to the hive. As they visit other flowers they transfer the pollen to the stigma of the flower and fertilize it.

A flower is the means by which a plant reproduces. It contains male or female organs, or both together. Flowers usually have brightly colored petals or sepals to attract insects to pollinate them.
