There are three major types of plants:
- Flowering plants: These are plants with flowers that produce seeds, the most common type of plant on Earth. The word "flower" comes from the Old English word "flōwor," which means "to flow."
- Coniferous trees: These are trees that have needles and cones instead of leaves, such as pine trees or fir trees. The word "conifer" is derived from the Latin words for "cone" and "tree."
- Non-flowering plants: These types of plants do not produce seeds, but they still have flowers (e.g., ferns).
