Soulful Plotting

May 6, 2011


A thickened stem (storage organ, capable of storing food), with roots growing from it, which grows horizontally below or on the soil surface. New growth then emerges from different points of the rhizome. Examples Bearded Irises, Calla Lily and some lawn grasses are rhizome plants.

  1. Well, sometimes I think I’m a ‘rhizome’ storing food as the pounds add up.

    But on the lighter side, I have noticed ‘juicy’ stems on Calla Lillies and Berded Irises in the past. When clipping stems,they are always moist and healthy when cut near the base of the plant. Thanks for the information. bernadine
