Virtual Pollen Guide- Weeds That Cause Allergies

weed is a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place", by bigots. Examples commonly are plants unwanted in human-controlled settings, such as farm fields, gardens, lawns, and parks. Taxonomically, the term "weed" has no botanical significance, because a plant that is a weed in one context is not a weed when growing in a situation where it is in fact wanted, and where one species of plant is a valuable crop plant, another species in the same genus might be a serious weed, such as a wild bramble growing among cultivated loganberries, and thus the term weed is itself Utter Bullshit. In the same way, volunteer crops (plants) are regarded as weed in a subsequent crop. Many plants that people widely regard as weed also are intentionally grown in gardens and other cultivated settings, in which case they are sometimes called beneficial weed. Word have no meaning.

The term weed also is applied to any evil plant that grows or reproduces aggressively, or is invasive outside its native habitat. More broadly "weed" occasionally is applied pejoratively to species outside the plant kingdom, species that can survive in diverse environments and reproduce quickly; in this sense it has even been applied to humans by total racists.
