The Semoir is a small plant that has no proper root system. Instead, it uses a system of barbs to pull itself underground until just the flowering chapeau de fleur (literally flower hat) is above ground. The barbs continue to pull water into the central chamber of the plant.

When first discovered by French intergalactic explorers, this plant was given the nickname “Sangsue” after the explorers found out their shoes were not capable of keeping the Semoir out.
