Hi there the only plants I know to be wind pollinated is dandelions and oak trees dandelions have seed on a splayed parachute to pick them up and drift with the wind and oak seeds get blown of and spin down delaying their descend by spinning allows them to be carried further away. ^^You're confusing pollination with seed dispersal. Oaks are wind pollinated and dandelions are apomictic and don't use pollen at all (produce seed asexually)

Seed dispersal from wind is considered to be an indirect way in which plants procreate. One of the benefits of seed dispersal from wind is that no other action is required for the plant to spread.

They are blown by the wind

In order to make a seed in a flowering plant, sexual reproduction has to occur. Pollen is created on the stamen, which is then transferred in some way to the pistil, whether it be attached on insects or blown by the wind. The pollen then travels to the ovary, where the seed is then formed from an embryo.
