"Most plants grow from their tips to add length. By contrast, grass grows from its base, emerging from a bud at, or just under, the soil surface, where sensitve growth tissues remain safe from the elements and hungry herds." — Douglas Chadwick, The American Prairie, Root of the Sky, National Geographic, October 1993
