Where is nectar produced?
Nectar is produced by glands called nectaries. Nectaries can be located on any part of a plant, but the most familiar nectaries are those located in flowers (called "floral nectaries"). Depending on the species, a flower's nectaries can be located on its petals, anthers, stamens, sepals, pistils, styles, ovaries or other parts of the flower.
