Suckers are the roots that spread out honey. Basically, another plant for free! Lol!

Some plants are grafted on to the roots of another (a bit like knitting two plants together). Some roses are grafted on to wild rose rootstock and lilac is often grafted on to privet rootstock. If there is new growth coming from below the graft (the place where the two plants are joined), it will be of the rootstock plant not the top one - this is what is known as a sucker
