Stigma (botany)

The scar is the upper portion of the stamp. It is sticky, often papillose and is for collecting and germination of pollen formed. In an undivided scar this is called capitate or ply. Is the scar divided it is called, depending on the depth of the subdivision as a multi-lobal (like in cruciferous vegetables ) or multiple columns (like in crocus and bluebells ). Runs the division right up to the stylus are several scars present. If no pen available so the scar is sitting (like at Mohn ).
