- Abies guatemalensis
- Asclepias linaria
- Baccharis sarothroides
- Bidens alba
- Podocarpus glomeratus

- Not sure what it refers to here. Sorry.
grass known by several common names, including purple pampas grass and Andean pampas grass. It is similar to its more widespread relative, the pampas grass Cortaderia selloana, but it can get quite a bit taller, approaching seven meters in height at maximum.
This grass is native to the northern Andes but it is well-known elsewhere as an invasive species noxious weed. This grass has only pistillate parts, that is, all individuals are female. It reproduces by apomixis, in which embryos develop without fertilization (from Wikipedia).
