Question about flowers?

I have a question about flowers.....

In many flowers, the pistils and the stamens reach maturity at different times. Why would this be an advantage to the plant?

Question about flowers?
this is usually an advantage.........this condtion is called Dichogamy......try checking out this site....but sometimes it helps in getting pollen from other flowers which will result in better varieties
Reply:It means that the plant will not self-pollinate, and the introduction of pollen from another plant protects it against deleterious mutation and produces a better seed.
Reply:so the plant will have to accept pollen form another like flower instead of self pollination
