What are major ways to classify flowering plants?
Flowering plants (angiosperms) are classified by their structures.
Flowering plants that have only ONE seed leaf are monocots. Some examples of monocots are plants in the grass family, such as grass in your lawn, corn, wheat, and rice. See the chart above for other structures of the monocots.
Flowering plants that have TWO seed leaves are dicots (or eudicots). Some examples of peas, sunflowers and oaks.
