    One of the most common plant allergy is often called “Hay Fever.” Hay fever is caused when tons of plant pollen is in the air and breathed into the human mouth or nose. So, the worst kinds of plants are plants that produce and release large amounts of pollen in the air in order to reproduce.

    Plants like ragweed seem obvious and sound like a plant that would be abundant and cause problems. Less obviously, even large trees like, oak trees, elm trees and maple trees all release tons of pollen into the air, often causing problems for people with hay fever.

    People can also be allergic to certain plants if they’re consumed, such as strawberries, or certain nuts.
