Rhizome

Rhizomes are stems of plants, typically found underground, that have many shoots and roots extending from its nodes. If you cut the rhizomes into pieces, each piece can grow into a new plant. Some examples of rhizomes are ginger, lilies, and asparagus. Rhizomes usually grow horizontally (my ginger’s just awkward).The picture shows ginger, which is also a vegetative crop, meaning that you can take parts of it, plant it into the ground, and have another plant (like potatoes).
