What is the function of a flower petal?

Good question. The primary function of the flower petal is to attract pollenators that will spread the pollen to other plants to be germinated. The bright colors of a petal are used by angiosperms (flowering plants) to attract mostly bees, which gather the pollen from one plant and carry it to another, which allows the pollen to collect on the sexual parts of the plant to germinate new ones.
