1. Meristematic Tissue
These undergo active cell division. Such tissues present at root and shoot tip are called apical meristems. During formation of leaves and stem elongation, some cells get left behind from shoot apical meristem, these are axillary buds. Axillary buds are present in axil of leaves and are capable of giving rise to a new branch or flower.
