PLANTS: HOW THEY LIVE AND HOW THEY ARE MADE
The perianth is formed by the chalice (set of sepals) and the corolla (set of petals) that surrounds the reproductive organs (stamens and pistil).
The perianth, however, in many flowers may be missing (then it is said naked floweroraclamide); or there may be only the chalice or only the corolla (then it is called apoclamide); or chalice and corolla can be well distinguished from each other (then it is called heteroclamide).
If, on the other hand, calyx and corolla are the same and it is not possible to distinguish them, then it is said to be in bloom homoclamide and the perianthis called PERIGONIO and the parts of the chalice and the corolla are called TEPALI.
