How Pine Flowers?

Pine belongs to gone trees, like all conifers, so no flowers and, in fact, can not bloom, unlike flowering plants. If, of course, perceive this phenomenon as we used to see in the spring on our streets and in the gardens. However, even in scientific works, the process of awakening to life after winter at coniferous trees, accompanied by the formation of male and female sexual entrancements, with subsequent pollination and conception, are not different as blossom. Therefore, we will and we call it the same simpleness for us.

Families blossom

Men’s inflorescences at pine are more like spikelets, and women – on small bumps. Color, in truth, they are very simple, unprecedented: the spikelets fadel-yellow, and the shishchek is the same pale, but only a pinkish shade. In addition, neither those nor other flowers smell. But it is not necessary for them, as the bumps are pollinated by wind, and not insects. Attract anyone with their bright look or the smell of nature is not given.

Yes, and the flowering process itself is the same. The species composition of the pine includes, according to the latest data, 124 varieties. Especially noticeable pine bloom in cases when it is a huge abundance of male inflorescences – they look like a candle glowing on branches. But such an abundance is not so often. Among women’s inflorescences also often come across an unusual beauty of copies.

By the way, sobbies-inflorescences have a pleasant taste and are very helpful, because rich in vitamins.

Nature provided it seems to. So here she distinguished himself: Male and female inflorescences Pine placed amazing way – on different branches. In addition, it provided and the opportunity for free pollination, opened the path for pollen, placing and male spikelets, and women’s buns at the tip of the branches. In this case, the movement of pollen cannot interfere with the needles.

Flowering period

Even a period of flowering of coniferous rocks, among which it includes pine, occurs at that time, while deciduous trees after the winter have not yet dissolved their leaves. That is, the same mechanism of natural equilibrium is valid – nothing should interfere with the favorable flow of the process of pollination of coniferous plants.

Arrows colors on pine appear already in the second or early third of the third decade of April – in the middle of spring. They begin to bloom depending on the growing area: in Siberia and the northern regions of the European part of our country, most often in early June, in the middle zone – after May 20, and in the southern regions and before.

In any case, flowering will not be until the air warms up to 20 degrees.

Male inflorescences – spikelets are, in fact, an education consisting of miniature shishches. Each such male shishchka has so-called pollen bags at the bottom of its scales, in which pollen ripens. On women’s cones – also on scales – there are seed beginnings, or seeds.

From the strength of the wind pollen is spread over long distances, and falling on women’s seed scales, gluits with them by resin. Next occurs the process of fertilization, giving the beginning of a new life – germin and seed.

It should be noted that the pollination of the pines passes very violently. With a sufficiently strong wind in coniferous forests, you can notice whole clouds of yellow dust, and after the rain, all puddles are covered with a yellow layer of pollen. Other injecting eyewitnesses such phenomena sometimes think that the forest covered some chemical emissions nearby productions. And this is just a safe pollen from coniferous trees.

Almost all pines bloom each spring. And for the first time they can be blooming at a very different age, and even within one variety, the difference can be up to 20 years. It all depends on the conditions of growth. For example, Pine ordinary in an indulgent place begins to be fronding at about the 15th age. But if it grows in cramped conditions, for example, landing are thickened, then the first time it will give the fruit no earlier than in 25, and even in 40 years.

This is influenced by other conditions of growth: soil, moisturia, temperature.

After flowering

At the beginning of flowering, a female bump with ripened seeds sticks up, scales open, as if waiting for the starting pollination. And indeed, it is necessary that pollen easily hit directly by appointment – under the scales, closer to the seedups. In the end, it happens – pollen grains are glued to scales.

Further, After pollination, the female bump is inclined to the side and occupies a proviser. And space between scales is cleaned by resin. In these closed on the external influence, “cradles” will continue to occur by ripening seeds, the duration of which is more than one and a half years, more precisely – 20 months.

The bump for more than a year will have a greenish color, after which it will begin to darken into brown. And then it will open somewhere by the end of the second winter and starts with the help of wind to sow their seeds on the forest expanses. And this sowing will last for quite a long time -.
