ROOTS:

A part of the plant (usually underground) whose function is to act as support and anchorage, as a place of food storage and the primary organ of water and mineral absorption.

Some daylily roots are fibrous or cord-like, others very fine; some have conspicuous spindle-like thickenings (used primarily for water storage) as in "Europa."
