Quick Answer: Flowers can be either dicots or monocots.
Why Are Flowers Considered Dicots and Monocots?
Dicot vs. monocot is a system for categorizing flowering plants. If the plant sprouts with a single seed leaf, it is a monocot, and if two leaves appear, it is a dicot. In most cases, you can also determine which family a flower falls into by the number of petals it has. Monocots have petals in multiples of threes (3,6,9, etc.), and a dicot flower will have petals in sets of either four or five.
