UNISEXUAL FLOWERS -

The flowers in which either the male or the female reproducative organs are present only, are called unisexual flowers. They are called incomplete flowers. They undergo cross-pollination in order to reproduce.

Example - Papaya, Watermelon, Corn, etc.

 

BISEXUAL FLOWERS - The flowers in which both the male and female reproductive organs are present, are known as complete or bisexual flowers. They are capable of self-pollination.

Example - Mustard, rose, lily, hibiscus, etc.

HOPE THIS HELPS :)
