A weed is often something of value

Most plants have value of we open our minds. Visiting Medellin, Colombia, we often saw fountain grass used as a landscape plant. In drier regions of Hawaii, it covers vast area of raw lava land where it is a pioneer species, Unfortunately, it can be a hazard where careless activities can cause fires like last week's burn in the Waikoloa area.

A weed may be defined as any plant growing in the wrong place. Perhaps an even better definition for a weed is a plant for which we haven’t found value.
