Ok, so the answer to this wasn’t as straight forward and I first thought!
Starting with the dictionary meaning of weed, however:
a wild plant growing where it is not wanted and in competition with cultivated plants.
"keep the seedlings clear of weeds"
And then flower:
noun: flower; plural noun: flowers
the seed-bearing part of a plant, consisting of reproductive organs (stamens and carpels) that are typically surrounded by a brightly coloured corolla (petals) and a green calyx (sepals).
In this context though I wasn’t looking for the definition of the bloom itself, mainly the difference of a flowering plant, so:
a living organism of the kind exemplified by trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, ferns, and mosses, typically growing in a permanent site, absorbing water and inorganic substances through its roots, and synthesizing nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis using the green pigment chlorophyll.
But by the amount I have read about the difference is that a weed is basically any plant that is growing where you don’t want it to, and in turn restricting/constricting the root growth of plants that have been cultivated there.
This has cleared up some of the questions I had, I hope it has for you as well 💞
