How Hybrid Flowers Are Created

Hybrid flowers are created in a similar way as natural flowers. Pollen from male stamens fertilizes ovules within female pistils, resulting in new plants from which seeds can be obtained. In the case of hybrids though, the fertilization happens between different species or even different genera. The hybridization of different viola species created pansies.
