B for Bract – Word up!

Modified leaf, usually protecting the base of the flower. Most bracts take the form of small green or brown structures but they may be coloured and petal-like in some species, such as euphorbia and hydrangea.
Some bracts have become brightly coloured in order that they may perform the function of petals: that of attracting insects to the flower for pollination purposes.
