an underground stem capable of producing new stems or plants at its nodes
Rhizomes  Identifier Rhizomes

A horizontal stem of a plant that is usually found underground, often sending out roots and shoots from its nodes.

It is a method of reproduction for plants.

A stolon is similar to a rhizome, but, unlike a rhizome, which is the main stem of the plant, a stolon sprouts from an existing stem, has long internodes, and generates new shoots at the end.
