Guys & Guy,

In order not to muddle terminology I advise to use "rhizomatous" when the
underground part of a plant IS a rhizome itself, and "stoloniferous" when
the underground part(s) sends out stolons (rhizome-like offsets). As such,
CT369 is NOT rhizomatous but stoloniferous (the stolons developing from a
perfect depressed-globose tuber.
