1. Sepal
A member of the (usually green) outer whorl of non-fertile parts surrounding the fertile organs of a flower.

2. Sepaloid
Looking like sepal s, e.g. of bract s, usually green and arranged in a ring beneath a flower.

3. Sepals
Modified leaves that protect a flower's inner petals and reproductive structures. Small, leaf-like structures in flowers that enclose and protect the developing flower. These are often green, but in many monocots they are the same color as the petals (in which case the term tepal is applied since sepals and petals look so much alike).
