    A tumbleweed is a plant that spreads its seeds by (after its death) rolling over the lands and its seeds are sowed as it rolls around.

    I was under the impression that tumbleweed is an Asian introduced species. I could be wrong, but that's what i heard.

    Hey DroseraDude... that's where i was born, too. Little bit before you, though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Hey DD...that's a COOL photo! Those are monster tumbleweeds.

    For anyone interested, there are websites online that sell tumbleweeds. And sometimes they are on eBay. I've thought of getting one. I've always thought they were cool. They are plants that have always been associated with feelings of lonesomeness and homelessness but also of freedom.

    Nice pic of all you guys...very cute. I think you should keep the tumbleweeds. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Only that they'll gouge up your back garden + your parents will proly kill you. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    I won't even think of keeping one in my house, maybe I* can *when* I get a house with a garden. Or maybe I can get some seeds, hey, anyone know where I can get them? I'm always interested in growing any intruiging plant or seed I can find (or random ones I pick up on the road and don't even know their identity, will have an exciting (but probabbly long and painful) journey in taxonomy like Tamlin says...) Dosera-luva, I'm just curious, where exactly do you find those? I taught they only existed in the desert (rolling around like in those desert scenes in cowboy movies), wonder how they get the momentum for such a huge plant to roll on and on - must be somethin' in the plant's design as a survival feature...amazing how nature can be heh?

    I think I vote for freedom more, can roll around wherever you like, hehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    How do they survive the desert - they look so dry. Are the seeds on or in the plant? Looks like they can keep rollin' for weeks... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Anyone considering buying tumbleweed seeds and voluntarily introducing them in their area should be thrown into a pit filled with the nasty smallly (okay, i give up. The built in censor of this forum is changing 'p r i c k l y' to smallly for no apparent reason, over and over and over...) dry hulks they produce.

    I would have thought that they were considered a noxious weed, and therefore illegal to plant?
