Rhizomes are underground stems that grow near the soil surface. They typically have short internodes and scale leaves, and produce roots along their lower surface. They store food for renewing growth of the shoot after periods of stress.

Example: Prayer Plant, Queensland Arrowroot, Clivia miniata, Rhoeo (Moses in the Cradle), Kangaroo Paw, Iris, Ginger, Canna Lili
