Some plants are
considered to be “weedy plants” because they spread easily and grow
without any purposeful cultivation, but they aren’t weeds.
Only harmful plants are
considered to be weeds. Plants that invade the habitats of other plants,
causing damage and death, are considered to be weeds.
These weeds appear in
habitats that already belong to other plants, growing so well and so quickly
that they overtake or otherwise compromise the existing ecosystem.
