This is a picture of a flower, flowers like other plants get their food through photosynthesis. It is the leafs part of the plants job to collect the sunlight, but even after the plant has the food (Glucose and other metabolic products) it still needs to get down to the rest of the plant or flower, that is where the phloem comes in. The phloem is the tissue in the plant that brings the products down from the leaf.
