Dear Student.
Please find below the solution to the asked query.

Mint is an example of stolon.

Stolon is a modification of stem which is also known as runner. These are horizontally oriented stem that grow along the soil surface giving rise to roots and aerial branches. E.g. Mentha sp.(mint).

Mint plant reproduces both vegetatively and through seeds. Vegetatively they reproduce by runners or stolons, which produce new roots and shoots at the nodes, in the presence of favourable conditions.
