Does Mint(Mentha arvensis) come under the category of sucker or runner or stolon or rhizome? In one of my books,it says,"In plants like mint and jasmine a slender lateral branch arises from the base of the main axis and after growing aerially for some time arch downwards to touch the ground." My teacher,on the other hand says,Mint is an example of a sucker,just like Chrysanthemum.He is pretty sure. I searched on the net.In wikipedia,it says rhizome and runners under the genus Mentha,but there is no sign of a sucker or even a stolon. So what is correct?Please help!
