Stolons are stems that grow at the surface of the soil, or just below. They form adventitious roots at their nodes, and new plants from their buds. These new plants are clones of the original.

Sometimes stolons are referred to as runners.

Potato tubers are actually modified stolons, and form at the end of the potato plant’s stolons.
