In brief: Trees, grass, weeds
Pollen are fertilizing grains produced by plants for propagation.
Some plants use the wind to help in pollination producing massive quantities of pollen that become airborne; these include trees, grasses, and weeds. If you are prone to allergies, these plants can cause symptoms during certain seasons. Plants that make pretty, fragrant flowers attract insects for propagation & don't cause allergies.
