Pollination is very important. It leads to the creation of new seeds that grow into new plants. Animals such as bees, butterflies, moths, flies, and hummingbirds pollinate plants. When they move from one flower to another to feed, some of the pollen from the first flower falls off onto the new plants stigma. Another way plants are pollinated is by the wind. The wind picks up pollen from one plant and blows it onto another. Plants that are pollinated by the wind often have long stamens and pistils. Since they do not need to attract animal pollinators, they can have dull colors, unscented, and with smaller or no petals, since no insect needs to land on them.
