Some familiar kinds do have separate "male" and "female" plants [the
botanical word for this is "dioecious"], but most don't. You can tell pretty
easily -- do some trees produce all the pollen, and other trees produce
all the seeds [fruits or seed cones]?
Some dioecious examples: Ginkgo; red cedar [Juniperus]; date palms
[Phoenix]; wax myrtles [Myrica]; poplars [Populus]; hollies [Ilex]; all
cycads; marijuana [Cannabis]; etc...
