USAGE NOTES In its most common sense as "a colorful conspicuous structure", the word _flower_ includes many structures which are not anatomically flowers in the botanical sense. Sunflowers and daisies, for example, are structurally clusters of many small flowers that together appear to be a single flower (a _capitulum_, a form of _pseudanthium_), but these are considered to be _flowers_ in the general sense. Likewise, the botanical definition of _flower_ includes many structures that would not be considered a flower by the average person, such as the catkins of a willow tree or the downy flowers found atop a cattail stalk.

From Middle English flour, from Anglo-Norman flur, from Latin flōrem, accusative of flōs, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰleh₃ (to thrive, bloom). Replaced Middle English blosme, blossem (flower, blossom) (more at blossom).
