"Surrounding the reproductive organs in most flowers, there are two sets of floral parts. The upper set is the petals, which may be of any color; the lower set is the sepals, which are usually green. However, if only one set is present they are considered to be sepals, even though they are brightly colored." — Lawrence Newcomb, Newcomb's Wildflower Guide
