A profile of this plant says not to bury the rhizome, sorry for the dense question, but what the heck is a rhizome?!?! Thanks

A somewhat elongate usually horizontal subterranean plant stem that is often thickened by deposits of reserve food material, produces shoots above and roots below, and is distinguished from a true root in possessing buds, nodes, and usually scalelike leaves.

It's kind of like the thick central part of the root system. It's thicker and then all the other little roots come out of it.
