The colored part that most people refer to as 'the flower' is actually a calyx which, is a collective term for all the sepals of the flower. This a unique structure in that the sepals ((i.e. you are looking at sepals when you look at a closed bud) are the 'pretty' part of the flower, the petals are very small, white and inside the calyx.
