Are weeds more drought resistant than other plants?

    This is difficult to say. A weed is not considered a weed until it is a plant that grows in an undesirable place; i.e. affects the growth of a plant that is desired in that area. A weed is no more drought resistant than its species will allow it. Weeds may be able to thrive in lower water environments next to plants that require more water to survive; the weed can be there because it is more suitable for that environment. But it is still a plant, and droughts can affect any form of life in the area.

    Weeds are more hardy than most plants, unless they are of desert origination.  For example, wildflowers and cacti have adapted to survive in dry regions, much as animals have.
