    deep long route

    Salt grass has a long deep route. Either deep or long should be used. Am I right?


    What do you say in English?

    Thank you for your response.

    Deep roots. Not routes. A deep route is something a wide receiver runs in (American) football.

    Re: deep long route

    "Long, deep roots" is fine. Some plants have long, shallow roots.
