8 most common species:
Echinochloa crus-galli
Barnyard grass
Barnyard grass (Echinochloa crus-galli) is a type of wild grass that's indigenous to tropical parts of Asia. It is a destructive weed. This is because it reduces crop yields by removing most of the soil nitrogen. A dense growth of this weed can even make it difficult to mechanically harvest crops.
Echinochloa colona
Jungle rice
Jungle rice (Echinochloa colona) is a fast-growing summer grass that requires heat and moisture. It looks similar to commercial rice plants and is considered a noxious weed in rice fields. It can be eaten by animals including water buffaloes.
Echinochloa frumentacea
Billion-dollar grass
Billion-dollar grass (Echinochloa frumentacea) and morphologically similar Japanese millet (Echinochloa esculenta) are grown as cereals and grain sources for livestock in India, Pakistan, and Nepal. The grain of Echinochloa frumentacea contains more than 70% starch, and smaller amounts of fat, proteins, and ash. It's believed that billion-dollar grass originates from India.
Echinochloa crus-pavonis
Gulf cockspur
Gulf cockspur is an invasive species of bunchgrass originally thought to be native to America, but that is widespread on other continents. The invasive weed is hard to control in rice fields, where it blocks irrigation and drainage ditches. It's often used in animal feed and grain production.
Echinochloa oryzoides
Early barnyardgrass
Echinochloa oryzoides is an annual herbaceous plant with upright stubble growing in dense clumps, up to 40 to 120 cm tall. The leaves are characterized by a glabrous sheath, an absent ligule, and a generally glabrous lamina, often drooping, 7 to 20 cm long and 4 to 12 mm wide.
Echinochloa esculenta
Japanese millet
It is grown in areas where the land is unsuitable or the climate too cool for paddy rice cultivation. However, the development of rice varieties that can withstand cold has led to a sharp decline in the cultivation of Japanese barnyard millet, in favor of rice. The earliest records of the domesticated form date to 2000 BC from the Jōmon period of Japan.
Echinochloa muricata
Muricate barnyard-grass
Echinochloa muricata is a species of grass known by the common names rough barnyard grass and American barnyard grass. It is native to Eurasia and much of North America..It is an annual grass growing one half to one meter in height.
Echinochloa walteri
Coast cockspur grass
Coast cockspur grass is a robust aquatic grass that thrives in shallow, freshwater habitats like ponds and marshes. It sports broad leaf blades and distinctive flower spikes with dense, dark grains that can reach impressive heights. This adaptability allows coast cockspur grass to provide cover for aquatic fauna while also demonstrating resilience in fluctuating water levels.

Dracaena
Dracaena
Dracaena are popular house plants that are easy to grow. They can tolerate low-light conditions and require little watering. Their leaves range from variegated to dark green. Their characteristic traits include woody stems that grow slowly but offer a striking appearance for small spaces such as apartments or offices.
Ficus
Fig trees
Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
Rubus
Brambles
Brambles are members of the rose family, and there are hundreds of different types to be found throughout the European countryside. They have been culturally significant for centuries; Christian folklore stories hold that when the devil was thrown from heaven, he landed on a bramble bush. Their vigorous growth habit can tangle into native plants and take over.
Acer
Maples
The popular tree family known as maples change the color of their leaves in the fall. Many cultural traditions encourage people to watch the colors change, such as momijigari in Japan. Maples popular options for bonsai art. Alternately, their sap is used to create maple syrup.
Prunus
Prunus
Prunus is a genus of flowering fruit trees that includes almonds, cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, and apricots. These are often known as "stone fruits" because their pits are large seeds or "stones." When prunus trees are damaged, they exhibit "gummosis," a condition in which the tree's gum (similar to sap) is secreted to the bark to help heal external wounds.
Solanum
Nightshades
Nightshades is a large and diverse genus of plants, with more than 1500 different types worldwide. This genus incorporates both important staple food crops like tomato, potato, and eggplant, but also dangerous poisonous plants from the nightshade family. The name was coined by Pliny the Elder almost two thousand years ago.
Rosa
Roses
Most species of roses are shrubs or climbing plants that have showy flowers and sharp thorns. They are commonly cultivated for cut flowers or as ornamental plants in gardens due to their attractive appearance, pleasant fragrance, and cultural significance in many countries. The rose hips (fruits) can also be used in jams and teas.
Quercus
Oaks
Oaks are among the world's longest-lived trees, sometimes growing for over 1,000 years! The oldest known oak tree is in the southern United States and is over 1,500 years old. Oaks produce an exceedingly popular type of wood which is used to make different products, from furniture and flooring to wine barrels and even cosmetic creams.
