Plant Parts - Roots
Basic parts of most all plants are roots, stems, leaves,
flowers, fruits, and seeds.
The roots help provide support by anchoring the plant and
absorbing water and nutrients needed for growth. They can
also store sugars and carbohydrates that the plant uses to carry
out other functions. Plants can have either a taproot
system (such as carrots) or a fibrous
root system (such as turf grass). In both cases, the
roots are what carries the water and nutrients needed
for plants to grow.
