A trailing branch which is disposed to take root at the end or at the joints; a stole.
An extension of the integument of the body, or of the body wall, from which buds are developed, giving rise to new zooids, and thus forming a compound animal in which the zooids usually remain united by the stolons. Such stolons are often present in Anthozoa, Hydroidea, Bryozoa, and social ascidians. See Illust. under Scyphistoma.
a runner that roots
an above ground modified reproductive stem
A horizontal stem at or just below the surface of the ground that roots at the nodes and produces new plants. Also called "runners."
n. (L. stole, stolonis, a twig, shoot) a stem which grows from a stem above the ground, taking root at the tip, and ultimately developing a new plant.
a shoot or root which may be above ground or underground
A horizontal, above-ground stem with modified leaves, nodes, internodes, and axillary buds.
a horizontal branch or "runner" that grows from the base of a plant and produces buds or new plants.
A horizontal, underground stem
a runner or any basal branch which roots.
a branch which strikes root at the top, and then develops an ascending growth, which becomes an independent plant, like a strawberry runner.
horizontal, aerial (runner) hyphae which gives rise to rhizoids and sporangiophores
A thin, underground runner.
Aboveground runners or slender stems that develop roots and shoots and new plants at the tips or nodes, as in the strawberry plant.
A basal branch rooting at the nodes.
Think strawberries. Stolons are stems running horizontally along the soil's surface. Because they have nodes like all stems do, stolons can send roots down as they go, creating new plants
Horizontal stems that grow over the surface of the ground, developing new plantlets at the tips; as in strawberries (Fragaria).
similar to the rhizome but creeping over the soil surface.
runners and/or stems that creeps over the ground surface, forming plants where it roots.
referring to runners ("stolonifera" = "bearing runners")
A branch at the base of a plant that can take root and form a new plant.
an underground portion of a plant that grows horizontally, like a grass root.
a horizontal branch from the base of plant that produces new plants from buds at its tips
a portion of the grass plant that contains the genetic root node capable of reproduction
Above-ground stem of a plant that produces roots and shoots at the nodes.
A horizontal runner; a specialized stem with long internodes, capable of rooting at the nodes to establish new plants; means of vegetative propagation (e.g. tape grass).
A horizontal stem growing just below the gravel, as in many species of Cryptocoryne.
Stolon Sprössling, m Subespecie An underground stem; often at the end of such growth another bulb is produced.
A branch that grows horizontally above the medium and produces roots and shoots at the nodes.
A horizontally growing stem.
a running stem or branch, aerial or along the surface of the substrate that can root at the nodes.
a stem which grows along the ground, producing roots and shoots; a runner
a trailing stem which roots and develops a new plant at intervals.
a runner or long branch arising at the base of a plant and taking root.
an above-ground, horizontal stem.
A horizontal stem lying on the surface of the soil.
A stem that grows horizontally along the surface of the ground. These above-ground runners take root at the joints or tips, forming new plants. See drawing of parts of a grass plant.
A horizontal stem that forms roots at intervals.
A horizontal stem that roots at its tip and there gives rise to a new plant.
a stem that grows horizontally above the ground and may produce roots and shoots at the nodes (e.g., a runner)
a prostrate or trailing stem that produces roots at the nodes. cf. rhizome, runner.
A horizontal stem which roots at the nodes.
A prostrate stem above ground which can drop roots into the ground from it's nodes.
A stem that creeps along the surface of the sediment or ground.* Go Back
A horizontal, fleshy above-ground stem or runner. Creeping grasses spread by rhizomes or stolons.
shoots running on the surface, rooting at the tips.
creeping offshoot or "runner" from which young plants arise
Sometimes confused with runner, this horizontally growing stem roots at its tip, not its nodes.
This is an aboveground stem that, when it touches the ground, may grow roots and possibly a new stem at that point.
An aboveground stem that reclines or becomes prostrate and may form roots at the nodes that may come into contact with the ground.
A creeping stem on the surface of the soil.
A jointed, above-ground, creeping stem that can produce roots and shoots at each node and may originate extravaginally from the main stem of tillers.
from the base of a plant, a creeping, horizontal branch or stem which produces new shoots.
Trailing or lateral stem of some forage species at or below the soil surface capable of rooting and sending up new shoots at the nodes.
Horizontal stem above the ground which roots at its nodes producing a new plant.
A spreading stem that grows along or under the ground and roots at the tip to produce a new plant.
A long slender stem running along the surface of the ground, arising from the axil of a leaf, whose function is to enable rapid vegetative propagation in an area. Runners are found, for example, in strawberries and creeping buttercup.
the creeping stem of a rosetted or tufted plant, giving rise to another plant at its tip.
A stem running horizontally on the soil surface which may produce shoots or roots. See also Rhizome.
a horizontal stem usually found below the ground that produces a new plant at its tip.
A creeping stem above the soil surface, roots usually form at the nodes
An aboveground horizontal stem which may produce adventitious roots and new plants at nodes. Stomata: Stomate: Small openings, usually found in the undersurface of a leaf which permit air exchange, and the escape of water vapour from the interior of the leaf. Stomates are opened and closed through the action of guard cells.
Horizontally growing stem that produces adventitious roots, generally when in contact with the soil.
A runner which spreads along the surface of the ground, from which daughter plants can evolve. White clover has stolons which are an important attribute for it's persistence
Horizontal aboveground stem, aka 'runner', capable of producing new plants from bud-nodes. Example: strawberry.
A horizontal stem, usually growing along the surface of the ground, often giving rise to new plants at its tip; runner.
An above ground shoot or runner that results in a new plant.
prostrate (lying flat on the ground), slender aboveground stem producing new plants at nodes
a lateral, above ground stem used in propagation. Example: stolons in strawberry plants
A horizontally spreading stem, with roots at its tip
a creeping stem along the surface of the ground.
a slender, horizontal stem, above or below the ground
(stoloniferous) Creeping overground stem or short duration, often rooting at the nodes.
An elongate, creeping stem on or above the surface of the ground.
A horizontal stem that grows either above or below ground level and is distinguished from a rhizome in that it is not thickened with food reserves.
an above-ground prostrate stem which provides the means of reproduction of some perennial plants.
A stem which grows above ground in a horizontal manner. It gives rise to roots and shoots at the nodes. Example plant = Creeping bent, Agrostis stolonifera.
A specialized plant stem which grows from a stem above the ground, taking root at the tip, and ultimately developing a new plant. From the Latin, stole, stolonis, "a twig, shoot."
Slender, trailing stem that roots at the nodes.
Tiller; runner; shoot that bends down to the ground and takes root, or a horizontal stem (on or below the ground) that gives rise to a new plant at its tip.
A stolon is an above-ground stem that has buds that sprout to form new shoots, forming a new, genetically-identical plant. Strawberry plants have stolons.
A stolon, commonly referred to as a runner, is an aerial shoot from a plant with the ability to produce adventitious roots and new clones of the same plant. Such plants are called stoloniferous. A stolon is a plant propagation strategy akin to a rhizome.
