Magnoliophyta is the Plant Division that includes flowering plants. Sometimes they are also called "angiosperms." Plants in the Magnoliophyta Division have leaves, stems, and roots. They have seeds which are enclosed in a shell-like coating. These seeds are spread by wind, water, or animals so that they may land in new places and grow into new plants.
Plants from the Magnoliophyta Division include crops, grains, grasses, garden and roadside weeds, and broad-leaved trees and shrubs.
The Magnoliophyta Division is split into two main Classes, listed below:
Liliopsida Class: Plants in this class are sometimes called "monocots," which is short for "monocotyledons." This means that young seedlings have only one seed leaf. Includes: grasses, lilies, sedges, bulb plants, orchids, cattails, and greenbriers.
Magnoliopsida Class: This is the largest class of flowering plants. Plants in this group are sometimes called "dicots," which is short for "dicotyledons." This means that young seedlings have two seed leaves. Includes: oaks, maples, elms, sunflowers, daisies, roses, pondweeds, violets, blackberries, and many more.
