WhyReef - Fun Facts
Green seagrass may look like seaweed, but it’s actually quite different. When it reproduces, it bears flowers, fruits, and seeds just like roses and other flowers that live on land. Seaweeds don’t have these things. Green seagrass also has a root system that keeps it connected and anchored to the sea floor.
