TUBEROUS ROOT

Tuberous roots are root tissue, unlike tubers, rhizomes, and corms which are stem tissue, and bulbs which are leaf tissue. There are no buds or "eyes" as in rhizomes or tubes. Tuberous roots are divided by separating the roots while maintaining pieces of the stem base in each division.

Examples include:

Agapanthus, Canna, and Clivia (Kafir Lily)
