The Duckweed Family (Lemnaceae) has the smallest known flowering
plants. They are free-floating or submerged water
plants that spread mostly by vegetative means. Flowers
are rare and very much reduced, having no sepals or
petals but just one or two stamens in the male flower and
a single pistil in the female flower. The duckweeds
(Lemna) have short roots dangling in the water and the
watermeals (Wolffia) have no roots.
