They grow and bloom from shallow, fleshy rhizomatous roots.
Can a generous benefactor of the arts (perhaps Dia) manufacture for us several thousands so that we can run amok with these geological illuminations in Canada's trillion-barrel tar pits or Russia's still untapped gas fields, away from amateur astronomers and other light-sensitive nighttime fauna, making new earthly constellations of future negative contour lines and rhizomatous pipelines?
If the degree of genetic variation can be used as an indication of resilience of populations to change, it is likely that this resilience will be greatest among plants in old populations of widely distributed, wind-pollinated vascular species (e.g., rhizomatous Carex populations in eastern Siberia).
By comparing 19 different populations of three rhizomatous Carex taxa, distributed among 16 sites within arctic Eurasia, ranging from northern Scandinavia in the west to Wrangel Island in the east, Stenström et al.  showed that the levels of genetic variation were not related to climate, but were to a large extent explained by differences in glaciation history at the sampling sites.
Many of the dominant arctic plants such as the rhizomatous Carex species are clonal, that is, they do not rely on seed production through sexual reproduction for short-term population maintenance.
Nitrogen uptake by rhizomes of the clonal sedge Carex bigelowii: a previously overlooked nutritional benefit of rhizomatous growth.
Spreads somewhat by rhizomatous roots, not is not aggressive or invasive.
Trees are virtually absent and are replaced by rhizomatous geoxylic suffrutices, or woody plants with most of their modified stems underground.

In depressions rhizomatous or stoloniferous genera such as Hemarthria, Ischaemum, and Paspalum are more common.
