The flower is a reproductive organ of an angiosperm plant. The typical flowers consist of sepals, petals, stamens, and carpels. A flower having both stamens as well as carpels or pistils is known as a bisexual flower. Flowers that are either staminate (means having stamens) or pistillate (having pistils only) are known as unisexual flowers. Thus the answer is unisexual flowers.

The correct option is B.
