Password: Campanula

Scheuchzers bell flower (Campanula scheuchzeri) is an alpine plant that only occurs at high elevations from 1400m a.s.l. in the European Alps and presumably in more northerly regions.
A late flower bud with the petals removed and with two anthers removed to expose the brush-like stylum.
The brush-like structure of the stylum for secondary pollen presentation. Pollen is being deposited in the comb-like hairs of the stylum as the anthers mature, because the anthers are pressed against the stylum firmly by the flower petals. The anthers are the male reproductive organs of the hermaphroditic flower and they are the place where pollen grains mature.
