Asexual Reproduction (strawberries-picture will not upload)

This strawberry came from a plant that produces asexually through special stems called “runners.” A strawberry plant’s main stem is called a crown. This crown produces spirals of leaves, runners, flowers and “branch crowns,” which are shoots that create more crowns. Runners are offshoots of the parent plant, stems growing out from the crown along the ground. At intervals along the runner, nodes appear. From each node, a “daughter plant” can develop, complete with roots and leaves.
