A cotton flower blooms in Clark Botanic Garden in Albertson, NY. It is a soft and fluffy staple fiber of the cotton plant belonging to the genus Gossypium. The cotton flower forms around the seeds of a plant, and it actually has an important biological function - to aid in seed dispersal. Cotton flower is composed of cellulose, and it is used for centuries to make soft textile. © Audrey C. Tiernan Photography, Inc.
