B for Bract – Word up!

Bract
\brăkt\
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.
