Snow Weed (nivas herbas) A small weed that grows all along the Morae River, The Snow Weed is believed to be the ancestor of all the variations of weeds that grow along the banks of the Morae. In the spring, Snow Weeds release thousands of tiny seeds into the wind during late spring. These seeds will travel for miles on the small puff of fiber protruding from it’s top. Snow Weeds are asexual plants and produce seeds without pollination, a process called apomixis. This is form of reproduction is effective but results in the offspring being identical to the parent which can result in a weak lineage.
