    Most plants are C3 plants. Some non-food crop examples are: All species of fern (e.g. Dryopteris affinis), moss (Sphagnum russowii), conifer (Pinus pinea), club mosses (Huperzia phlegmaria) and other non-flowering plants. Of the flowering plants: stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), Perennial Ryegrass (Lolium perenne), all broadleaf trees such as English oak (Quercus robur) and sycamore maple (Acer pseudoplatanus), herbaceous plants such as red campion (Silene dioica), and so on. Basically all plants native to temperate climates are C3. Non-food crop C4 plants include elephant grass (Miscanthus giganteus), many species of Euphorbia (e.g. E. celastroides), pampas grass (Cortaderia selloana) and yellowtops (Flaveria trinervia) to name a few.
