*    Plant's Shoot System

 

The parts of the plant, which grow above the ground are called shoot of the plant.

All the other parts of the plants, except root, grows from it. Stem are again divided into many branches over which flower, leaves, fruits etc. grows.

Big plants like mango, apple, neem etc. have very strong stem (trunk). They are called trees. Whereas plants like cereals, pulses have very weak stem hence they are called herbs. Shrubs lies in between tree and herbs. Shrubs are not as big and strong as trees and not as small and weak like herbs. Rose and hibiscus have hard and woody stem hence called shrubs.

 

           

 

There are some plants like grapevine, money plants etc. that have very weak and thin stem and can't even stand of their own. They take the support of ground, wall or other plants for climbing.
