- P. myriophylla is a woody subshrub that forms patches of prostrate or decumbent stems often rooting at the nodes.
- They grow upward from the basal branehes and only become decumbent after they have grown a few centimeters.
- The occurrence of trees with decumbent stem form was also noted and leaning of the stem from a vertical posture was visually assessed.
Late 18th century: from Latin decumbent- 'lying down', from the verb decumbere, based on de- 'down' + a verb related to cubare 'to lie'.
