In Ruins (1995), a Marvel Comics limited series, there is a child who says that she has a mother that "talks to flowers". Who's the child and who is her mother?

I was able to identify many of the characters referred to in Ruins but not this one. This part also wasn't mentioned in the Wikipedia plot summary for Ruins. I searched for Marvel comics characters that have a "talking to plants" ability but have only found Dryad and Klara Plast, and they both seem to have been introduced after Ruins was published.

The page where the character appears and mentions her mother is below:

The girl was just a girl. According to my good friend, Ruins artist Terese Nielsen, she was inserted into the plot in order to demonstrate Phil Sheldon's frame of mind.

Q: In Ruins, who was the little girl?

TN: The model was our daughter, the character was a random little girl that could tell he needed a flower and a hug.
