Elymus employed a variety of morphological responses both apparently to forage for local nutrient patches and to penetrate and circumvent root systems of different barrier species.
Efforts to introgress the rhizomatous
trait into new germplasm combinations have continued.
Of the 23 species with a frequency of occurrence [greater than]10% in these plots, 19 were perennials and 15 were rhizomatous
Technical note: Field measurement of etiolated tiller growth of rhizomatous
Only two other rhizomatous
species were recorded in the incubations: Linnaea borealis and Calamagrostis lapponica, but in very low densities.
As a general rule, neither do they need much in the way of pruning - but be warned, they do run, especially the rhizomatous
varieties which look most naturalised in British gardens.
It spreads by means of its strong rhizomatous
roots and soon forms large clumps, up to 2m (6ft) in height.
Active Formica mounds often develop a distinctive cover of the strongly rhizomatous
grasses Muhlenbergia richardsonis and M.
Plant life-form should also affect the spatial pattern of biomass on the landscape, with bunchgrasses forming more concentrated locations of biomass than rhizomatous
There are a good number of hybrids available of this rhizomatous
perennial, reminiscent of smaller spikes and flowers of Gladioli.
Vigor ratings were based on visual estimates of the amount of fall growth, density of tillering, and plant diameter, or for rhizomatous
species, plant spread.
Other bulbous and rhizomatous
plants can take up the baton.
