Question: Are Gymnosperms considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Gymnosperms are neither dicots nor monocots.
Why are Gymnosperms Not Considered Dicots and Monocots?
Dicot/monocot are two classifications that apply only to flowering plants, and gymnosperms are non-flowering. The word gymnosperm comes to us from two Greek words, ‘gymno’ meaning naked and ‘sperm’ meaning seed; literally “naked seeds.” The name gymnosperm was applied to them because they have exposed seeds most often found either on leaves or scales modified to form cones.
