What is the center yellow part of a flower called?

does anyone know the actual name for the middle yellow part of the flower that you see?

What is the center yellow part of a flower called?
its called a carpel
Reply:I believe it is called the stigma
Reply:Carpel - the female part of the center of a flower. Also known as the pistil
Reply:The pistil (or carpel). http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-the-dif...





it isn't a very flowery name, but that is the actual name.





The stigma is the stem.
Reply:pollen, but it is only found in male flowers
Reply:Sounds to me as though you are talking about the central yellow part of a daisy flowering head (although these are not always yellow either). If you are, it is called the "disk" and is covered with small flowers called "florets".





Otherwise, the center part of a flower isn't always yellow, unless it has a large yellow stigma (the top part of the gynoecium, aka pistil).
