The morphology of a whole-plant emerges from the combination of many intertwined processes. Shoot and root morphogenesis are linked by exchanges of mater and information. The aim of the work presented here was to build up a whole-plant model of grass based on programmable and self-organized morphogenesis. I will present the main assumptions of the model and the empirical evidence underpinning them. The main emerging properties of the system and their plausibility in the context of constrained plant growth will be discussed.
