The pistils of a crocus are the reproductive organs of the plant. They are located in the center of the flower and are surrounded by the stamens. The pistils are made up of the ovary, stigma, and style. The ovary is the lower part of the pistil where the ovules are produced. The stigma is the sticky surface at the top of the pistil where pollen is deposited. The style is the slender stalk that connects the stigma to the ovary.
