Expert Answer:

The calyx is the outermost whorl of the flower. It is usually green. The units of calyx are called sepals.

  • The calyx encloses and protects the inner whorls of the flower in the bud stage against insects, rain, drought and intense sunlight.

  • Since the sepals contain chlorophyll, they can also synthesize food.
